Format: Paperback
A good review of the national and international European political systems, or most of them. Comparatively presented, not compared in depth, though. A good read

European Politics 20 Mar. 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Simply the best book on comparative West European politics. Organised by theme rather than country; but does not just cover the 'big' countries as most texts do. Excellent.
