The political parties of western Europe's Centre Right have been surprisingly neglected in contrast to the parties of the Left. This book sheds light on these parties, which include the "Gaullists" and "Giscardians" of France, the Christian Democrats in Germany and Italy, the Conservatives in Britain and the Democratic Centre Union in Spain; the Liberal parties in these countries are also covered.
