Description

The Green Challenge is an up-to-date and comprehensive account of the development of Green parties in Western Europe, and includes an account of the development since 1989 of an East European Green movement.

Blending theory and empirical analysis, the book contains chapters on each of the main western European cases and on a number of other less-studied ones. These are designed to demonstrate the shifting balance of party-political competition the factor the authors believe most strongly influences the fortunes of the Greens.

The editors also integrate a valuable analysis of the environmentally-degraded Czech Republic, where the Green parties' lack of electoral success has puzzled many observers.

Reviews

`I have been looking forward to The Green Challenge for some time… Richardson and Rootes have helpfully sandwiched chapters about Germany, France, Britain, Belgium, The Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland, Italy, Greece and Czechoslovakia, with a look at Green party philosophy and programmatic development and an overview of the formation and development of Green parties… readable and uncluttered.' - Sarah Parkin, Resurgence
