Discusses the theory and concepts of partisanship. Using indicators of the strength of party identification—or party attachment—as its main analytical tool, it traces the development of partisanship in some 15 party systems in post‐war Western Europe, noting changes across time and between countries. While some countries show partisanships to be in steady and steep decline, in others the trend is cyclical, and in the newer democracies (such as Spain) it is even on the increase.

Keywords:   partisanship, Western Europe
