Elections: The Federal Republic of Germany in Comparison
Beginning with a discussion of democratic theory, the German system is then treated against the background of the French and British electoral systems to provide a comparative dimension and an understanding of peculiarities in the German system. The book ends with a full survey of elections and electoral laws in the Federal Republic of Germany and considers whether there are any alternatives to the present system.
