  • Nationalism in Italian Politicsby Damian Tambini

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 54.95

    This book is the first full-length study available in English to trace the extraordinary history of the Italian Northern Leagues during the 1980s and 1990s. At a time when the postwar First Republic entered a crisis amid corruption scandals, the Leagues acted as one of the main protest actors and grew at an unprecedented rate. Drawing on electoral... more...

  • Operation Idrisby Richard Synge

    Society for Libyan Studies 2015; US$ 12.99

    Operation Idris provides the unofficial story behind the British Administration’s cultivation of Sayyid Mohammed Idris as the figurehead for their project of indirect rule in Cyrenaica.

    Temple University Press 2008; US$ 27.95

    Berlusconi's Italy provides a fresh, thoroughly-informed account of how Italy's richest man came to be its political leader.

  • Die Macht der Parlamenteby Martin Sebaldt

    VS Verlag für Sozialwissenschaften 2009; US$ 46.35

    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...

    Oxford University Press 1988; US$ 99.99

    The first comprehensive history of Italian Socialism in English, this book ranges from the defeat of Socialism by Mussolini in 1926 to its resurgence as a powerful force in Italian politics today, and sheds new light on such figures as Morandi, Nenni and Italy's first socialist prime minister, Bettino Craxi. 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...

    Springer New York 2007; US$ 152.57

    Few established European democracies have undergone as much change as Italy in recent years, and here is a book that explores precisely what has been achieved – from a public choice perspective.
