This book looks at how the evidence of and stability in modern political parties and s is interpreted. The emphasis is on western European political parties. The primary focus of the book is on processes of political adaptation and control, but it also concerns how parties and s generate their own momentum and ‘freeze’ themselves into place. Amidst the widespread contemporary discussion of the challenge to modern democracy and the crisis for traditional forms of political representation, it offers an emphasis on how s survive, and on how , when it does occur, may be analysed and understood. The book has four parts, and the constituent chapters are from various essays reflecting work that has been carried out since the late 1980s. Part I contains an introductory chapter on the freezing of s. Part II has three chapters that deal with questions of persistence and , and with the vulnerability and endurance of traditional parties. Part III has two chapters in which attention shifts to the question of organization, and to the ways in which the established parties are increasingly coming to invade the state, finding there a new source of privilege and a new means of ensuring their own survival. Part IV has three chapters that focus on structures of competition in western s, as well as on the problems associated with the consolidation of the new s in post-communist Europe. , competition, freezing of s, new s, organization, , s, persistence, political adaptation, political control, political parties, post-communist Europe, stability, survival, traditional s, western Europe, western s
