Coalition Governments in Western Europe is the most comprehensive empirical analysis to date of coalition politics. Based on a large cross-national data collection, covering the entire post-war period from 1945 to 1999, it is the first systematic study of institutions of governance andconflict resolution in coalition governments. The book is also an unparalleled source of information, membership, termination, and electoral performance of coalition parties. The volume also analyses the institutional frameworks in which coalition politics takes place in the individual countriesand discusses which constraints for government formation, coalition governance, and colition termination result from them. The information has been collected in standardized form by first rate country experts, and is presented in the form of standard tables.Comparative Politics is a series for students and teachers of political science that deals with contemporary issues in comparative government and politics. The General Editors are Max Kaase, Professor of Political Science, Vice President and Dean, School of Humanities and Social Sciences,International University Bremen, Germany, and Kenneth Newton, Professor of Comparative Politics, University of Southampton.
