Government and Politics in Western Europe offers a clear and accessible, yet sophisticated, comparative introduction to the political institutions of Western Europe's four largest countries: Britain, France, Italy, and Germany. The third edition of this successful and established student textbook has been thoroughly revised to cover not only developments at national level, but also the growing integration of national politics with the politics of the European Union, including: Two completely new chapters on the European Union which set the EU in the context of the national political systems studied elsewhere in the book, supplying a concise but thorough introduction to European institutions, and presenting the main theoretical perspectives on the EU. An extensive updating covering such recent events as the Left's election victories of 1997 in Britain and France and the collapse of the Italian party system in the mid-1990s. New tables and diagrams providing invaluable reference material for key facts and processes. Clearly written and comprehensive, this text will be essential reading for all students of comparative politics, European studies, and West European politics.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Remains the best introduction available to comparative Western European Politics", Dr Alan Greer, University of the West of England
'This is the best comparative work by far -- highly recommended to students' * Bill Bowring, University of East London *
'Too many books in this area deal with the countries 'side by side'. The great strength of this book is its genuinely comparative treatment of themes...the book is an ideal text.' * H. P. O'Niell, Nottingham Trent University *
'Meny's text is one of the best general works available on comparative West European politics. It is clearly written, clearly structured, and full of detail. Essential reading for any student taking courses on West European politics and specific country studies.' * Alan Greer, University of West of England *
'Provides a clear and simple framework for analysis which students new to this field will surely welcome.' * German Politics *
