Summary

The Green Challenge is an up-to-date comparative analysis of the rise, development and varying electoral successes of Green parties in western, southern and central Europe. It provides a common comparative perspective and contextual setting through which the very different fortunes of individual Green parties operating in different national circumstances can be analysed. By using a comparative thematic perspective rather than a pre-ordained theory, The Green Challenge not only points out the deficiencies of existing theoretical studies but illuminates the primary factors which have helped to make the rise of political ecology such an important development in contemporary Europe. Its conceptual unity and coherent approach make it essential reading not only for students of Green politics but for Green activists and anyone interested in the rise of political ecology.
