George Tsebelis, Anatol Rapoport Collegiate Professor of Political Science, University of Michigan, USA Extremely informative and very well structured book stemming from the idea that politics in the EU countries cannot be understood without the study of the interaction with EU institutions.

Liesbet Hooghe, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and European University Institute, Florence, Italy Foundations of European Politics is the first textbook that looks at supranational and national politics through the same analytical lens. Clearly organized and crisply written, it successfully translates state-of-the-art research into accessible insight. Highly recommended for graduates and undergraduates. A superb volume by four top scholars that will transform how the next generation will think about European politics.

Michael Laver, Professor of Politics, New York University, USA Authoritative and informed, yet accessible, this excellent introduction to European politics deftly interweaves theory and data. Designed to make readers think for themselves, this book offers a fine introduction to political science more generally, from respected authors who really know their stuff.

Simon Hix, Harold Laski Professor of Political Science, London School of Economics and Political Science, UK This is the first textbook that presents a truly integrated comparative political science analysis of national and European level politics, and how these two levels interact to produce the dramatic political, economic, and social developments we have witnessed in recent years. As such, this book will transform how we teach and understand politics across our Continent for many years to come.

Isabela Mares, Arnold Wolfers Professor of Political Science Yale University, USA This book integrates in a sophisticated way theoretical debates in comparative politics and an analysis of contemporary political developments. It provides students with the tools necessary to understand recent political changes occurring both in European member states and at the supra-national European level. It is highly recommended for courses in European politics, party politics and for general courses in comparative politics.

Dr Katjana Gattermann, Assistant Professor, University of Amsterdam, Netherlands This book provides an excellent and unique addition to the teaching of comparative European politics. It covers many crucial challenges that European democracies are currently facing, and students will greatly benefit from the empirical focus and hands-on approach throughout the book, which makes for accessible and enjoyable reading!

Dr Chris Burdett, Assistant Professor, Virginia Commonwealth University, USA Foundations of European Politics is an ambitious, fresh take on European politics that challenges the reader to consider the intersection of theory with empirics.
