Starts by presenting a summary of the findings of the national case studies covered in the study of political parties and democratic control in advanced democratic societies. The summary excludes the case of the European Union, and the findings are presented under the same three headings used in the case studies: party legitimacy; party organizational strength, and systemic functionality. The following section discusses political parties and democratic theory, and a concluding section looks at parties and democratic reform.

Keywords:   advanced democratic societies, advanced industrial democracies, case studies, democratic control, democratic reform, democratic theory, party functionality, party legitimacy, party organization, party performance, political parties
