With the passage of the Cold War, political parties in nearly every corner of the globe have undergone a vast upheaval. Political Parties and the Collapse of the Old Orders describes these changes using several countries as laboratories: the United States, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Canada, Australia, Mexico, Israel, South Africa, and Russia. In this "new world order, " the old political arrangements and old ways of doing things have disappeared. The altered states of political parties in the post-Cold War world pose a central question: what does change look like? The answers given here illuminate our understanding of why the world has changed and how political parties are attempting to cope with it.

Review:

There are several dimensions to this work which I especially like. First and foremost, the work is the only body of scholarship which explores on a global scale the place of political parties within the context of the post-Cold War era. It is therefore timely, comprehensive, and unique. The scope of the material is impressive. Second, the work will take students into political systems where relatively little is known regarding partisan and electoral politics. It will be an excellent educational tool. Third, the work is deep, probing, and rich in data. It is not an impressionistic volume, but instead empirically based. For these three reasons, I find much value in this work. Gary L. Rose, author of The American Presidency Under Siege"
