Description:

Thoroughly updated, Politics in Europe remains an approachable, yet rigorous introduction to the region. Its strong analytic framework and organization, coupled with detailed country coverage, ensure that students not only get a robust introduction to each country, but also are able to make meaningful cross-national comparisons.Key updates include: an expanded introduction that situates European politics within a comparative framework; more substantive discussions in the "Future of..." chapters; the latest in European politics, including the election in Britain, the aftermath of the deaths of Polish government leaders, the financial crisis affecting Greece and other European countries, and more; updates of key social and political issues including immigration, gender, religion, civic society, and trans-Atlantic relations; and up-to-date tables and figures with key cross-national data.
