About this book
'Pathbreaking in its theoretical insight and scope of coverage, Morality Politics in Western Europe solves the puzzle of how and where moral conflicts arise in a secularized Europe... This original contribution is essential reading for all scholars and students of public policy, comparative studies, and religion and politics.'
- Raymond Tatalovich, Professor of Political Science, Loyola University, Chicago, USA
'Theoretically sophisticated and empirically rich, the studies collected in this book explain the puzzling fact of why in some countries morality issues become politically explosive, while in others they sometimes do not even reach the political agenda. This is a well-written, authoritative and easily accessible contribution to our comparative understanding of what provokes and
what dampens conflict around morality issues.'
- Kees van Kersbergen, Professor of Political Science, Aarhus University, Denmark
'Morality Politics in Western Europe is a breakthrough piece of scholarship. These scholars are the first to explore systematically the causes and effects of morality-based policy issues outside the US... The work is truly comparative in the best sense, revealing what has heretofore been largely ignored by political scientists that while morality issues in Europe constitute perhaps a small proportion of the overall public agenda, they - play an outsized role in defining politics there.'
- Christopher Mooney, Professor in the Department of Political Science, University of Illinois at Springfield, USA
