Comparative politics is a series for students and teachers of political science that
deals with contemporary issues in comparative government and politics. As
Comparative European Politics it has produced a series of high quality books since
its foundation in 1990, but now takes on a new form and new title for the
millennium—Comparative Politics. As the process of globalization proceeds, and as
Europe becomes ever more enmeshed in world trends and events, so it is necessary to
broaden the scope of the series. The General Editors are Max Kasse, Vice President
and Dean of Humanities and Social Sciences, International University, Bremen, and
Kenneth Newton, Professor of Government,
University of Southampton. The series is published in association with the
European Consortium for Political Research.
