Beschreibung

Party Politics in Germany is the only English-language study of its kind and examines the phenomenon of party politics in the Federal Republic through comparison across time and space. It draws upon new data from the 2002 Federal elections and recent Land elections, as well as on a far more explicitly comparative literature than is generally found in single-country studies. The book not only sheds new light on political phenomena in Germany but also allows students of the comparative method to apply some of the key concepts, models and approaches with which they are familiar to the rich context of a single country study.

Zusammenfassung
'Party Politics in Germany is a significant addition to the existing literature and could become a standard text for a range of scholars, German specialists and comparativists alike. Charles Lees gives us important new perspectives on Germany's historical development and contemporary changes. His treatment throughout is firmly grounded in comparative theory - unusual for a book with a single-country focus - and provides us with new insights into the German case. It is a path-breaking venture that will be widely welcomed.' - Gordon Smith, Emeritus Professor, Department of Government, London School of Economics and Political Science, UK 'Charles Lees' book on German political parties makes an important contribution to this new mainstream of political science scholarship. Well structured and clearly written, Party Politics in Germany will be enjoyed by its readers and will encourage academics to make certain that they include case studies of Germany in their courses. Highly recommended.' - Professor Alan Ware, Fellow and Tutor in Politics, Worcester College, UK
