Other countries are considered in chapters in which they are of particular interest. The new edition includes substantially expanded country profiles of 9 'core' countries plus additional boxed features on 'key points' and 'key debates' to aid learning.A companion website provides www links, questions and answers, chapter notes and update material etc.The fully revised 2nd edition of this popular text provides a thematically organized introduction to the governance and politics of Europe. An accessible, up-to-date guide, it covers the institutions and issues that matter, and uses 9 representative countries as case studies throughout.
