This book provides the most comprehensive analysis to date of the roles that political parties perform in twenty OECD nations. It finds that parties continue to exercise their traditional roles in organizing elections and structuring the government process, but that they are losing the allegiance of a public that is increasingly non-partisan and sceptical about political parties as institutions. These findings lead to a discussion about the changing nature of representative democracy as these nations enter the 21st Century.

Review:

`This is a very good book. Serious students of political parties, and indeed anyone interested in the challenges facing modern electoral democracies, will want to read it. ... readers will soon discover that one of its many virtues is its clear prose, straightforward presentation of
comparative evidence, and comfortable balance between the particular and the general. ... The editors deserve much credit for producing that rarest of academic products - a genuinely integrated collection in which the whole is more than its (very substantial) parts.'
