From the Publisher"Meticulously researched and cogently argued, this new study is essential reading for anyone interested in grasping the intricacies and dynamics of Spain's contemporary political landscape."
Chris Ealham, Social Sciences and Humanities, Saint Louis University, Madrid
"Two distinguished scholars, one American and one Spanish, known for their extensive and outstanding work on Spanish politics, have joined to produce an extremely readable, informed, up-to-date textbook on Spanish politics in theoretical and comparative perspective. A book not only for students of Spain, but of European and comparative politics."
Juan J. Linz, Sterling Professor Emeritus of Political and Social Science, Yale University
"An up-to-date and balanced analysis of some of the key issues which explain the recent evolution of politics in Spain following the country's recovery of democracy and the integration into the European Union. After giving a historical and constitutional overview, Gunther and Montero focus on political parties, elections, public policies, as well as on this atypical multi-level system of governance that is the 'Estado de las Autonomías.' This book is certain to become a major academic reference work for any reader interested in the Spanish political system and its evolution."
Ferran Requejo, Professor of Political Science, Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona
