Dutch political culture is often regarded as an important example of the rise and spread of 'New Politics' since the late 1960s. Recently, some authors have argued that such expectations about changes in political values, political interest, political participation, and the party system would not survive empirical testing. However, by taking rates of change rather than absolute levels, by re-examining the evidence in the light of more recent data, and by distinguishing short-term period effects from a long-term trend, it is shown that tremendous changes in Dutch political culture have taken place, and are still taking place.
