About this book

This book tackles the 2014 European Parliamentary election as an event, phenomenon and process from an interdisciplinary but coherent perspective. This edited volume includes research by prestigious academics from the former communist countries in question, all of which have only recently become EU members. The contributors consider whether there is a crisis of Euroscepticism, or, for that matter, extremism of any kind in each country discussed. In doing so, the volume seeks to analyse the future of the European Union itself. It will appeal to scholars and graduate students interested in elections and voting behaviour, comparative European politics, and political communication.

Reviews

“This collection of essays offers unique snapshots of national contests within nations facing challenges for the embedding of democracy. … The rich coverage and insightful data within the essays raise particularly important questions for consideration for the study of the future of democracy in Europe. Hence this work represents a must read for scholars and practitioners in this important field of human endeavour and the book a timely and welcome contribution to the Palgrave Political Communication and Campaigning series.” (Darren G. Lilleker, Medijske Studije, Vol. 7 (14), 2016)


“This book is a valuable cross-national investigation of the media’s agenda-setting role, of voters’ social identities, and of the political party systems in the countries examined (Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Hungary).” (Professor Daniela Rovența-Frumușani, University of Bucharest, Romania)

“The focus on the political campaigns, media coverage, national versus European perspectives, and the vote, makes this volume a very comprehensive book on the 2014 European Parliament elections in a region where our collective knowledge is finally brought up to date.” (Professor Claes H. de Vreese, University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands)
