«Peter Mair has produced a book that represents political science at its most erudite ... It is a learned work based on wide reading. It is brimming with references to the contributions of other scholars.»

Times Higher Education Supplement

«Party specialists will be glad to have between one set of covers what is essentially a distillation of Mair's thinking over the past decade...this collection of articles and chapters does contain a hig degree of consistency. There is much shrewd observation and analysis in this book...a book that is stimulating for any party specialist and will inspire further research into the complex questions mapped out so clearly by the author. - David Hanley.»

«the strength of the book is primarily the quality of hte individual chapters. - Lars Svasand. Political Studies. 1998.»

«By bringing together a wealth of theoretical and empirical material Mair skilfully traces a line of argument based on the notion of change rather than decline. Throughout the book Mair unremittingly puts his finger on major sources of confusion. This book constantly challenges the reader by posing many stimulating questions and suggesting possible lines of future debate and research. - Rosa Mule. Government and Opposition. 1998.»

«...useful both for teaching and reasearch. Explicitly and consistently comparative, the volume engages the reader in interesting discussions. This book constantly challenges the reader. Rosa Mule. Government and Opposition. 1998»

«Mair's insightful approaches invite more research on party system change, especially research that is systematic and empirical. - Sadafumi Kawato. Journal of Politics. 1998.»
