Why do some political parties flourish, while others flounder? In this 2008 book, Meguid argues that the fortunes of green, radical right and ethnoterritorial parties are shaped by the strategies of mainstream parties. She explores how and why established parties undermine these niche parties or turn them into weapons against their mainstream party opponents.

'In this well-written, accessible, and superbly researched book, Meguid offers a new framework for explaining what she calls niche party success and failure. … Meguid's book significantly advances our understanding of the relationship between mainstream and niche parties, niche party success and failure, and party competition between unequals and nonproximal parties.'

'In this very valuable contribution to comparative state-church studies, Ahmet T. Kuru takes readers on a deep and illuminating dive to examine why three self-consciously 'secular' states - the United States, France, and Turkey - have come to treat religion in the public sphere so differently from one another … Kuru offers a fresh and well-researched perspective on the resulting clashes, and he demonstrates why assertive secularism won out in twentieth century France and Turkey.'
