This book introduces the reader to the knowledge we have of comparative political behavior, the questions that remain, and the implications of these findings. The analyses focus on the United States, Great Britain, Germany, and France in a broad cross-national context. Dalton offers the theory that the "quality" of citizen politics is alive and well whereas the institutions of democracy are in disarray. This revision of Citizen Politics not only expands its original thesis but also high-lights the newly found strengths and the challenges today's democracy must face.

From the Author:

What's new in the second edition
CITIZEN POLITICS makes the provocative argument that contemporary publics deserve more democracy. It discusses changing patterns of political participation, changes in public values, and how these trends are affecting electoral politics and public support for democracy. Compared to the first edition, this new edition has expanded the scope to include selected data from 18 Western democracies, and includes a data diskette with SPSS files from the World Values Survey. It is especially appropriate for college courses on public opinion, comparative parties, or European politics.

About the Author:

Dalton is professor of political science at the University of California, Irvine and the author, co-author, or editor of many books, including Democratic Challenges, Democratic Choices: The Erosion of Political Support in Advanced Industrial Democracies (2004), Critical Masses: Citizens, Environmental Destruction, and Nuclear Weapons Production in Russia and the United States (1999), and The Green Rainbow: Environmental Interest Groups in Western Europe (1994).
