This is the third volume in a series undertaken by the Association for the Study of German Politics (ASGP). It is a clear, concise, very useful volume on party politics in contemporary Germany. The editor begins the volume with a very good theoretical chapter on the nature of party democracy in Germany. This is followed by chapters on the nature of the new party systems, including the first all-German elections in 1990, "Party Perspectives" and "East German Dimensions," the decline of citizen movements, and the nature of party democracy in East Germany. Selected bibliography at the end of each chapter. Recommended for undergraduate and graduate collections. A. Katz; Fairfield University
