Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Stepping outside the beaten, approved, and well-trod tracks by informing your research and papers with the findings of economic sociology and economic anthropology will either be greeted with praise or you will be tossed on the street.  Your chances of the first are greater if you can find a major professor who has some sympathy for your preferred modus operandi.  PolSci ain't my field so I haven't a clue, can't help.  What I do know - from a friend who was tossed, several who are ABT, Elaine got hers, and my father-in-law, a department chairman - is: a thesis is a royal pain which is raised to the n-th degree if you also have to fight your thesis committee.  

She believed in nothing; only her skepticism kept her from being an atheist. -- Jean-Paul Sartre
