European Democracies is an introduction to the politics and governments of Western, Central, and Eastern Europe. Organized thematically rather than country-by-country, this fully revised edition examines topics such as electoral systems, the European Union, refugees and the welfare state, and asks how to explain variations in policy outcomes, and how globalization is affecting European Democracies, among others.

Throughout, the author treats Europe as a single but diverse entity and asks readers to compare what they learn about European politics with the politics of their own country. Fully revised to include comprehensive coverage of recent electoral politics and political events in Europe, such as Brexit, the refugee crisis, and terrorist attacks.

New chapters on immigration and the nature of European political culture and welfare state. New comparative sections covering topics such as political parties, and financial and political differences in governments between Europe and the USA.

This key, in-depth text will be essential reading to anyone interested in European politics and comparative politics. The 9th edition has not only been updated to provide state-of-the-art coverage of the most recent developments such as terrorist attacks, Brexit, and elections across Europe but includes two brand new chapters on most timely topics: This edition provides excellent thematic coverage of all the essential topics and is designed to provoke stimulating class discussions.

This textbook uses a novel comparative perspective to explain differences among European democracies, and between the United States and European democracies. I know of no textbook that does so as systematically and vividly.


Arranged thematically, this new revised volume provides the latest information on electoral systems and their outcomes, cabinet formation, party systems, government types, power sharing, and nationalism and ethnicity across European polities, among other important topics.

Each chapter concludes with a list of important terms and interesting and timely discussion questions. Especially impressive in the recent edition is the chapter on the evolution of the former Communist states of eastern and central Europe and the discussion of globalization.

I strongly recommend the Crepaz book for general courses in comparative politics as well as classes on European political systems. Organized not by countries but by concepts, Crepaz stimulates 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. He has been at this institution since and is the Head of the Department of International Affairs since He has published numerous articles on electoral engineering, European politics, interpersonal trust, immigration, and corporatism.
