Alternative politics: the German Green Party

T. Poguntke, Wolfgang Rudig (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

The Green Party's political success in Germany spearheaded the 1980s "green wave" in other West European democracies. Despite their defeat in 1990, the Greens still hold the balance of power in Germany and stand a good chance of making a comeback in the 1994 elections. This book is a comprehensive account of the organization, ideology and political style of the party. It examines intra-party political culture, the social profiles of voters and party activists and the party's place in the New Politics. Comparing the Greens to established parties, the book tries to give a full account of the German party system, and assesses the adaptibility of both types of party in the new Europe.
