Overview

This book provides a unique and comprehensive guide to Spain's political and economic institutions. The authors show how these have evolved over the last decade to reflect the increasing regionalisation of public life and genuine integration of the country into European Union institutions. Informed comment at the end of each chapter balances detailed descriptions of the institutions concerned, and careful cross-referencing ensures an understanding of the key links between organisations. This is an expanded, revised and fully-updated edition of the authors' book Spain: a Guide to Political and Economic Institutions, first published in 1987

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Drawing on their expert knowledge as professors of Spanish and of economic-political studies, and specialists on Spain, the authors have enriched the detailed descriptive material with perceptive insights and interpretations." P. Vannicelli, Choice

"Newton and Donaghy's work serves as a reference source that list and describes the main institutional framework of the post-Franco era...scholars specializing in the institutional aspects of European Studies are likely to find all the information they require in this reference work." Review of Radical Political Economics
