Political Parties in Advanced Industrial Democracies

By Paul Webb; David Farrell et al. | Go to book overview

There has been some erosion of party support, in strength rather than in direction, and the mass memberships of some of the parties appear to be in decline. Both major parties have experienced a weakening in the strength of their supporters' commitment, and the mass membership of the Liberal Party, in particular, appears to be in long-term decline. Whether this forebodes any significant long-term party decline remains to be seen, and the evidence, both at the state and federal levels, is mixed. Past experience, however, suggests that unless there is a fundamental shift in the political culture that underlies the political system, the hegemony of the established parties is secure.
