Featuring carefully edited contributions from international experts, European Politics blends an analysis of individual nation states with an examination of the critical issues that confront them all. Taking into account the enlargement of the European Union, it provides coverage of Central and Eastern Europe along with discussions of Western Europe. The text considers both the national and transnational factors that affect and are affected by politics in Europe--notably European integration and globalization.
European Politics includes chapters on all the major issues, organized into four sections. Section One provides basic information and details of the essential debates concerning the states of Europe and the European Union. Section Two presents comparative chapters on the key features of European politics. These offer a sense of the major areas of continuity and change across Europe as a whole. Section Three again presents explicitly comparative chapters outlining the developments in specific policy sectors. Finally, Section Four outlines the nature of Europe's external relations.
European Politics is enhanced by excellent pedagogical features including readers' guides, key points, questions, web links, text boxes, a glossary, and a guide to further reading. A companion website features resources for students including an interactive map of Europe with facts, key dates, and web links for twenty-six countries; mulitiple-choice questions for each chapter; and a flashcard glossary. It also contains PowerPoint slides for instructors.
