Editorial Reviews

Journal of Modern Greek Studies
The book has two chief qualities. The first is its uncompromising comparative scope and the subsequent complementarity of its parts. The editors avoid a common pitfall of edited volumes: lack of integration and unifying perspective... The second quality of the book lies in its ambition to transcend the boundaries of Southern Europe and draw insights from the understanding of that region's experience to be used more generally in the theoretical study of democratic consolidation... It is without doubt the best comparative work on Southern European politics to date.

— Stathis N. Kalyvas

Foreign Affairs

There is a wealth of information here, but the outstanding merit of this volume lies in its illuminating comparative analysis.

Comparative Politics
Many of the contributions are required reading for anyone interested in the postauthoritarian politics of southern Europe.

Contributors analyze the processes of political change and the nature of political institutions and behavior in Greece, Italy, Portugal, and Spain, supplying historical background on the region's social and political change over the past century and focusing on factors impacting democratic consolidation. They compare Southern European consolidation experiences with those of countries in Latin America and Eastern Europe, and discuss civil-military relations, political parties, and social movements.
