European Politics by Paul Kubicek

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. Key changes for the new edition: * Fully revised and updated to include coverage of recent elections, public opinion data and key topics such as refugees, Russia and Ukraine, Syria, more on the economic crisis, and Brexit; * Expanded and revised opening chapter explaining Europeanization, multi-level governance, and the fissures in Europe; * Greater and updated coverage of theory, multi-culturalism, and the EU. This timely, in-depth text will be essential reading for anyone interested in European politics.


'This student-friendly book is an ideal accompaniment for an undergraduate class. Kubicek's accessible style, engaging questions, and comprehensive knowledge makes European Politics simply the best textbook I have found for instructing a class in the politics of Europe.' - Richard Arnold, Muskingum University, USA. 'An innovative, analytical approach to European politics. Kubicek tackles the major institutional and policy questions in Europe, providing a strongly comparative approach to domestic institutions, integration, and post-Cold War and post-communist politics. Indispensable for any course on the topic.' - Patrick H. O'Neil, University of Puget Sound, USA. 'With Europe as a continent at a crossroad, Paul Kubicek takes a broader view of European politics. This is an excellent contribution both to scholarly and non-academic debates bringing an up-to-date perspective on the current affairs of Europe. Kubicek's writing style makes content accessible and his insights provide a sharp angle to Europe's most pressing contemporary issues.' - Theofanis Exadaktylos, University of Surrey, UK. 'Kubicek provides a rich and insightful account of politics in Europe, which makes this book stand out among other volumes on the same topic. He identifies common threads among the politics in different European political systems, while also highlighting the distinctive features of each national system and of the European Union. Kubicek does so by transcending, but not ignoring, the usual divide between Western and Eastern Europe and between national and supranational politics.' - Kostas Kourtikakis, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA.'
