Summary/Abstract: The theory of coalitions has been a significant part of political science analysis since 1960. We can distinguish two traditions in the theory of coalitions – the American tradition and the European one. While the American theory of coalitions puts an emphasis on game theory, the European theory of coalitions focuses on political culture, traditions and social environment. The two traditions evaluate existing coalitions differently. This article demonstrates these different approaches by analyzing governmental coalitions in Saxony in the 1990s.
