9780205854783: European Democracies (8th Edition)

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.

About the Author:

Markus M.L. Crepaz is Professor of Political Science at the University of Georgia in the School of Public and International Affairs. He is currently the Head of the Department of International Affairs. He was born and raised in Austria. After attending the University of Salzburg from 1982 to 1986, he began his graduate study at the University of California, San Diego, where he completed his Ph.D. in 1992. He has published numerous articles on electoral engineering, European politics, corporatism, and the impact of political institutions on a host of policy outcomes. His current research focuses on the effects of increasing immigration on the willingness of European publics to continue funding the welfare state. His latest book is entitled Trust beyond Borders: Immigration, Identity and the Welfare State in Modern Societies and was published by the University of Michigan Press in 2008. Having lived in both worlds, the Old and the New, gives him a unique perspective from which to teach and research European politics in the United States.

 

Jürg Steiner is professor emeritus at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the University of Bern in Switzerland. He held a 2003-2004 chair position at the European University Institute in Florence, Italy. He is the winner of several teaching awards. His most recent publication is Foundation of Deliberative Democracy, Cambridge University Press, 2012. Currently, he works on the potential for deliberative politics in deeply divided societies. Steiner is a Swiss citizen who for 40 years divides his  time between the United States and Switzerland.

Review:

“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
