This book contains some interesting articles about culture in politics. I think the authors do establish that different countries do have different political cultures. However, I don't think the book actually proves its title, namely that culture matters. It's never clear whether culture is a product of political institutions and economic conditions, or vice versa. It's just as possible much of the empirical evidence they cite could be used to justify the claim that culture is merely a manifestation of deeper factors. It's worth a read if you're interested in culture, but don't expect definitive answers.
