Developments in European politics, edited by Veronica Anghel and Erik Jones - hbk

Developments in European Politics considers what Europe is, where it came from, and what European citizens can make of it. It brings together specially commissioned chapters by leading authorities to give an up-to-date and systematic analysis of European political developments - in institutions, processes and policy - at national, regional and international levels. It provides wide-ranging and clear analysis of the factors influencing European politics, from the populism and extremism in national politics to the broader forces of globalization, immigration, climate change and international terrorism. With a brand new contributor team, this new edition offers: - More coverage of Europe's role in the world - Increased focus on the attitudes of European citizens as the motor of European politics - End of chapter reading suggestions and key questions, enabling readers to engage with the important issues at stake - An overarching framework that hones in on four contemporary themes: the rise of authoritarian politics, the mismanagement of globalization, the perception of collective insecurity, and the disintegration of Europe.
