EVEN A QUICK dipping of the big toe into the icy turbulence of professional political science literature these days would be sufficient to make the fainthearted shiver and lose breath. The older marxian-type jargonist would be somewhat humiliated by the queer sort of language which is now commonplace in the academic writings on society and democratic theory in the United States of America (and Australia). Such words, repeated ad nauseum, as dichotomy, charismatic, dysfunctional, behavioralism, equiliberal, eschew, pluralistic, infrastructuralism, are perhaps not bad attempts at creating a mumbo-jumbo superior to anything we may have had in the past and having the effect of repelling all but the most stouthearted layman from becoming initiated into the mysteries of what it is "all about."
