This substantially revised, fully updated and expanded successor to the authors' highly successful"Dutch Government and Politics" provides a comprehensive introduction to governance and politics in the Netherlands. The authors explore the causes, impact and advantages and disadvantages of the quest for consensus, which remains its most striking characteristic, and provide a full account of recent developments regarding the monarchy, the unprecedented periods of government without the Christian Democrats, the management of the economy, the liberalization of euthanasia and the Europeanization of Dutch politics.
