Product Description


'A superb book on Swiss politics by two of the most prominent scholars in the field. Kriesi and Trechsel provide an excellent introduction to a fascinating political system whose relevance to the rest of the world is inversely proportional to its size.' Paolo Dardanelli, Lecturer in European and Comparative Politics, University of Kent

'The Politics of Switzerland provides scholars and the interested public with an overview over the political institutions, the main actors, and the main policies in the alpine Republic. This up-to-date text provides the most accessible introduction to the Swiss political system in English. It is a must-read for any scholar or student wishing to be introduced to the way in which the archetypical consensus democracy developed and functions today.' Simon Hug, Université de Genève

Book Description

Switzerland's political system is amongst the most complex and fascinating in contemporary democracies. The authors shed new light on the richness of Swiss political institutions, its refined political arrangements, and current reforms. Focusing on structures, processes and policies, this book relates the Swiss experience to broader debates in comparative politics.
