European Politics surveys the history, institutions, and issues that are essential for understanding contemporary European politics.
Exploring a central question–“What is Europe?”, this text’s thematic approach helps students compare politics in individual countries and see the political big picture in the region. European Politics examines not only countries already in the European Union but also those eligible to join to give students the most comprehensive picture of Europe’s evolution in a globalized world.
