About this book

The Politics and Government of Switzerland is one of very few English language studies of contemporary Swiss politics. Drawing on recent research in Switzerland, and the author's own observations, it offers wide coverage of Swiss political forces, processes and policies. Church argues that Switzerland is actually a vibrant and pluralist polity, in which politics are increasingly competitive. However, it still retains some distinctive characteristics like direct democracy, which mean that the Swiss people play a larger role than in other countries.

About the authors

CLIVE H. CHURCH has taught in Dublin, Lille and the Universities of Lancaster and Kent, where he became Jean Monnet Professor of European Studies. As well as publishing widely on the European Union and its treaties, he is the author of many articles on Swiss history and politics.

Reviews

'Clive Church, one of the leading foreign experts on Switzerland, has crowned 30 years of research with a book, written in English, on the Swiss political system. The Politics and Government of Switzerland seeks to destroy the illusion of a sleep alpine nation where very little happens.' - www.swissinfo.org
