Updated in its 8th edition, European Democracies is an introduction to the politics and governments of Western, Central, and Eastern Europe. Organized thematically rather than country-by-country, this text analyzes European countries from the level of the European Union and from the level of regions. It also surveys issues ranging from parties and policy to democratization and globalization. Throughout, Markus Crepaz and Jurg Steiner treat Europe as a single but diverse entity and ask readers to compare what they learn about European politics with the politics of their own country.

"This is a truly comparative textbook. Organized not by countries but by concepts, Crepaz and Steiner stimulate students to reflect on the possible explanations for key differences among European democracies and between Europe and the United States. An excellent basis for creative and vivid class discussions."-Arend Lijphart, University of California-San Diego
