Policy and Party Competition (1992) established itself as one of the mainstream data sources used by political scientists, when exploring the policy positions of political parties and has become a standard data resource for comparative political science.

This new book updates and radically extends this work, providing a wide-ranging empirical overview of party policy in 47 modern democracies, including all of the new democracies of Eastern Europe. The book is divided into three parts:

· Part I introduces the study, themes and methodology


· Part II contains a set of substantive chapters dealing in depth with the wide range of issues involved in the estimating and analyzing the policy positions of key political actors.


· Part III is the data section identifying the key policy dimensions in each of the 47 countries, party positions and median legislators on each of these, and a two-dimensional representation of each party system.

This book will prove to be an invaluable reference for all political scientists, particularly those interested in party policy and comparative politics.

Part I. Policy and political competition: 1. Dimensions of political difference -- 2. Policy positions and theoretical models of political competition -- 3. Empirical policy spaces -- Part II.
