Overview

In the acclaimed Politics of Democratic Consolidation, Nikiforos Diamandouros, Richard Gunther, and their co-authors showed how democratization unfolded in Greece, Italy, Portugal, and Spain, culminating in consolidated democratic regimes. This volume continues that analysis, posing the basic question: What kind of democratic politics emerged in those countries? It presents systematic analyses of the basic institutions of government and of the dynamics of electoral competition in the four countries (set in comparative context alongside several other democracies), as well as detailed studies of the evolution of the major parties, their electorates, their ideologies, and their performances in government over the past twenty years. The authors reach two major conclusions. First, the new democracies' salient features are moderation, centripetalism, and the democratization of erstwhile antisystem parties on the Right and Left. Second, no single "Southern European model" has emerged; the systems differ from one another about as much as do the other established democracies of Europe.

Editorial Reviews

Choice

Of uniformly high quality, these essays are notable in two respects. [They] are explicitly comparative, thus ensuring intellectual coherence and the prospect of theory building and hypothesis testing. The chapters are also empirically rich, drawing on numerous surveys as well as a voluminous secondary literature... The series has become a become an essential source for understanding the evolution of this important region.

Journal of Southern Europe and the Balkans
Beyond its specific substantive merits, this volume represents a further important contribution to the fulfilment of the goals that the Committee on Southern Europe—and thei nformal network of arious scholars built around it—had set for themselves in the late 1970s: this is to foster research on the political peculiarities of these countries and to integrate local scholarship and competence into the broader international theoretical dbate. This volume is a further achievement in setting Southern Europe on the map of comparative politics.

— Stefano Bartolini

Journal of Modern Greek Studies
Without doubt the best comparative work on Southern European politics to date.
Foreign Affair
There is a wealth of information here, but the outstanding merit of this volume lies in its illuminating comparative analysis.
