9780198279259: Parties and Democracy: Coalition Formation and Government Functioning in Twenty States (Comparative Politics)


This book examines the actual behavior of 400 governments in 20 postwar democracies (including those of Western Europe, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and Israel) to determine how political parties operate and shape the special characteristics of individual governments. It concludes that parties do function more or less as modern democratic theory says they should, and provides an understanding of democratic government and its moral justification.

About the Author:

Ian Budge is at University of Essex. Hans Keman is at Free University of Amsterdam.

Review:


"Budge and Keman base their analysis on an admirable data collection that is both broad in scope and nuanced in content....Fascinating."--Thomas R. Rochon, Claremont College (Journal?)


"Parties and Democracy addresses an important issue of major significance and presents a systematic, comparative, and comprehensive account of democratic party government. The authors successfully bridge between rational choice, historical, and spatial approaches and utilize logical, coherent, and clearly understandable statistical arguments."--Political Science Quarterly


"A major contribution....Will be widely cited and will be greatly influential in the field of comparative politics for several years to come."--Choice
