Of course, historians are not the only ones who study history in a way that can help IR thinkers; other synergies are worth touching upon. Beyond the historical work of some IR scholars, four schools of thought deserve mention here, if only in brief. The first school, historical sociology, has already been touched upon (see BISA 40th Anniversary Conference 2015). The second school is comparative historical analysis, which is composed mainly of sociologists or IR scholars. Comparative historical analysts are concerned with causal analysis in processes over time, such as the causes of social revolutions or the formation of states; they seek to assess causality via studying similar and contrasting cases and statistical large-N analyses.
