  • Making Democracy Workby Robert D. Putnam; Robert Leonardi; Raffaella Y. Nanetti

    Princeton University Press 1994; US$ 39.95

    Why do some democratic governments succeed and others fail?

  • Die Macht der Parlamenteby Martin Sebaldt

    VS Verlag für Sozialwissenschaften 2009; US$ 59.99

    Die Macht der Parlamente ist ein paradoxes Phänomen: Wo Volksvertretungen an einer Stelle Potential gewinnen, verlieren sie es oft zugleich an einer anderen. Das jüngst gewä- te Europäische Parlament ist dafür beispielhaft: Noch nie war es im Gesetzgebungsprozess der EU so einflussreich wie heute, und mit dem Inkrafttreten des Vertrags von Lissabon... more...

  • Nor Shall My Swordby Simon Heffer

    Head of Zeus 2012; US$ 5.99

    Simon Heffer examines the supposed crisis many in England feel they are approaching as the prospect of Scottish independence looms, arguing that it may, in fact, be in England's best interests. more...

  • Political Parties and Coalitional Behaviour in Italyby Geoffrey Pridham

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 180.00

    Coalitional behaviour is central to the Italian system of government but has been largely neglected by research. As a result, coalitions in post-war Italy have been viewed as simply unstable, short-lived and incohesive. In this book, the author corrects this one-sidedness by analysing Italian coalition politics as a continuous and dynamic process.... more...

  • Crisis and Transition in Italian Politicsby Martin Bull; Martin Rhodes

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 59.95

  • Videocrazia e teatralizzazione della politica nell?era berlusconianaby Vittorio Prada

    Frank & Timme 2014; US$ 61.51

    Il processo di innalzamento del livello culturale svolto dalla Rai delle origini è stato interrotto dall?irrefrenabile ascesa della TV commerciale che, oltre a farsi promotrice di valori materiali e per molti aspetti diseducativi, ha portato all?ottundimento dei telespettatori, proponendo loro un mondo edulcorato, fittizio e del tutto illusorio. L?autore... more...

  • The Challenge of Coalition Governmentby Nicolò Conti; Francesco Marangoni

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 54.95

    Since the advent of the Second Republic in Italy in the mid-1990s, a new generation of politicians has announced a shift in the system toward greater governmental leadership, policy innovation, government accountability and responsiveness to the citizens. Yet in recent years government has experienced frequent crises and deadlocks, policy blockades... more...

  • The Lega Nord and the Politics of Secession in Italyby Professor Anna Cento Bull; Dr Mark Gilbert

    Palgrave Macmillan 2001; US$ 160.00

    Since the late 1980s, the Lega Nord has broken the mould of Italian politics. Federalist, secessionist, populist, it has succeeded in mobilizing the entrepreneurial class of Northern Italy in a campaign against the Italian state. In 1996, it launched the idea of Panadia , a separate Northern Italian nation. This proved to be a step too far, but the... more...

  • Constructing Democracy in Southern Europeby Lauren M. McLaren

    Taylor and Francis 2008; US$ 54.95

    Why are some regimes democratic while others are not? Specifically, how have Spain and Italy managed to become democratic while Turkey, which shares many similar characteristics, has not? Spain, Italy and Turkey have shared common historical features which would have been disruptive to any new democracy; however they represent a wide array of... more...
