Overview

Is it possible to make sense of a political system where 123 people, each from different parties, can run for a single seat in parliament? This volume studies this contemporary Italian political system. Through an analysis of the system, the author explains party organization, formal government institutions—legislature, executive, judiciary, administrative, and sub-national—as well as the impact of the European Community on the national political system. He includes with a discussion of recent reforms at both national and local levels, and assesses the debate on wider constitutional reform.

From the Publisher
"A clear, well-organized and penetrating description and analysis of the Italian political system prior to 1993."—Stanley Payne, University of Wisconsin

"Excellent....An original account of the workings of the Italian political system....His analysis of governmental institutions is extremely well documented and quite original."—Political Science Quarterly

"An exceptionally detailed account of Italy's principal parties and government institutions."—Choice

"Well-informed and interesting....Hine's style is both lucid and terse throughout....Such an attempt at Italian politics is brave at this time of turbulence, and Hine has done a good job at explaining a system that is often confusing to non-specialists."—Times Higher Education Supplement
