Soziologie Der Deutschen Parteien
Soziologie Der Deutschen Parteien
By Friedrich August Freiherr Von Der Heydte and Karl Sacherl
Isar Verlag, 1955, 367 pp.

After some theoretical considerations about the nature and rôle of political parties, the authors discuss the parties in the German Federal Republic--their organization, social structure and functions. A significant study but not easy reading.
