Citizen Politics: Public Opinion and Political Parties in Advanced Industrial Democracies


This book introduces the reader to the knowledge we have of comparative political behavior, the questions that remain, and the implications of these findings. The analyses focus on the United States, Great Britain, Germany, and France in a broad cross-national context. Dalton offers the theory that the "quality" of citizen politics is alive and well whereas the institutions of democracy are in disarray. This revision of Citizen Politics not only expands its original thesis but also highlights the newly found strengths and, moreover, challenges today's democracy must face.
