The Nature of the Italian Party System

Original Synopsis

"The Nature of the Italian Party System has a total of 304 pages which are papers from writer 'Geoffrey Pridham'. This study, first published in 1981, focuses on a single region of Italy – Tuscany, and examines the internal and external relationships of the parties, their evolution and their roles in the years 1975-1980. Looking in depth and detail at the activity of the parties in Tuscany, the book identifies and examines different factors of change and continuity and comes to the conclusion that there has been significant movement in the political positions and strengths of the respective parties as well as in their strategic courses and inter-relationships. This volume has a particular importance due to the questioning of many previously held assumptions of the country’s party system in the light of political and socio-economic change during the 1970’s. This title will be of interest to students of European politics. 2016-01-29 time of publication of the book, [-Routledge-]"

Original Synopsis

"The Relationship between the Italian Leftist Parties and the Conflict in the Middle East has a total of 165 pages which are papers from writer 'Nicola Seu'. Israel went from being a symbol of the success of the labour movement to the personification of Western imperialism almost overnight. How was this possible? How could such a radical change occur in such a short length of time? Was it because of negligence within the Italian left resulting from a complex of excessive friendship towards the Jews and Israel? Has the analytical power within leftist political thought grown to shed new light on what was before veiled? It is difficult to believe that the presumed colonialist nature of Israel was not evident before the outbreak of the Six-Day War, just as it is not possible that the real nature of Zionism and the situation of the Palestinian victims were invisible prior to this event. Through an historical, political, and ideological investigation, this book explores this extraordinary, and multifaceted, phenomenon. 2016-03-08 time of publication of the book, [-Cambridge Scholars Publishing-]"

Governments and Parties in Italy

Original Synopsis

"Governments and Parties in Italy has a total of 133 pages which are papers from writer 'Giuseppe Ieraci'. This book challenges the traditional approaches to party system analysis and policy space. It offers a survey of the most recent changes in Italian party politics. It puts forward an original comparison of the policy positions of seven Italian coalition governments and of the relative policy positions of the Italian parliamentary parties from 1994 to 2006. That decade was crucial in recent Italian political history because since 1994 the party system in Italy has been going through a process of realignment. After almost 50 years of political immobility, Italian democracy has finally begun to work according to the principle of alternating power between government incumbents and the opposition. Specific methodology was developed for this research, with the political 'themes' articulated by Government and Parliamentary leaders treated as expressions of political preferences. Rather than positioning the parties on predetermined left-right scales, the 'spaces of competition' were derived directly by the political debates in parliament. 2008 time of publication of the book, [-Troubador Publishing Ltd-]"

Political Parties and Democracy

Original Synopsis

"Political Parties and Democracy has a total of 356 pages which are papers from writer 'Larry Diamond, Richard Gunther'. Political parties are one of the core institutions of democracy. But in democracies around the world—rich and poor, Western and non-Western—there is growing evidence of low or declining public confidence in parties. In membership, organization, and popular involvement and commitment, political parties are not what they used to be. But are they in decline, or are they simply changing their forms and functions? In contrast to authors of most previous works on political parties, which tend to focus exclusively on long-established Western democracies, the contributors to this volume cover many regions of the world. Theoretically, they consider the essential functions that political parties perform in democracy and the different types of parties. Historically, they trace the emergence of parties in Western democracies and the transformation of party cleavage in recent decades. Empirically, they analyze the changing character of parties and party systems in postcommunist Europe, Latin America, and five individual countries that have witnessed significant change: Italy, Japan, Taiwan, India, and Turkey. As the authors show, political parties are now only one of many vehicles for the representation of interests, but they remain essential for recruiting leaders, structuring electoral choice, and organizing government. To the extent that parties are weak and discredited, the health of democracy will be seriously impaired.

Political Parties and Coalitional Behaviour in Italy

Original Synopsis

"Political Parties and Coalitional Behaviour in Italy has a total of 440 pages which are papers from writer 'Geoffrey Pridham'. 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. His comprehensive, interpretative approach takes account of other new developments in coalition studies and relates his subject both to the literature on Italian politics and to the comparative study of party systems in liberal democracies. An introductory section places Italian coalitional behaviour in a theoretical and comparative context. This inductive framework is then used as a reference for examining the historical, institutional, motivational, internal, socio-political andenvironmental dimensions of the phenomenon. 2013-07-04 time of publication of the book, [-Routledge-]"

The Oxford Handbook of Italian Politics

Original Synopsis

"The Oxford Handbook of Italian Politics has a total of 664 pages which are papers from writer 'Erik Jones, Gianfranco Pasquino'. The Oxford Handbook of Italian Politics provides a comprehensive look at the political life of one of Europe's most exciting and turbulent democracies. Under the hegemonic influence of Christian Democracy in the early post-World War II decades, Italy went through a period of rapid growth and political transformation. In part this resulted in tumult and a crisis of governability; however, it also gave rise to innovation in the form of Eurocommunism and new forms of political accommodation. The great strength of Italy lay in its constitution; its great weakness lay in certain legacies of the past. Organized crime - popularly but not exclusively associated with the mafia - is one example. A self-contained and well entrenched 'caste' of political and economic elites is another. These weaknesses became apparent in the breakdown of political order in the late 1980s and early 1990s. This ushered in a combination of populist political mobilization and experimentation with electoral systems design, and the result has been more evolutionary than transformative. Italian politics today is different from what it was during the immediate post-World War II period, but it still shows many of the influences of the past. 2015-11-05 time of publication of the book, [-Oxford University Press-]"

Re-inventing the Italian Right

Original Synopsis

"Re-inventing the Italian Right has a total of 272 pages which are papers from writer 'Stefano Fella, Carlo Ruzza'. Following his third election victory in 2008, the Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi was the most controversial head of government in the EU. This is a cogent examination of the Berlusconi phenomenon, exploring the success and development of the new populist right-wing coalition in Italy since the collapse of the post-war party system in the early 1990s. Carlo Ruzza and Stefano Fella provide a comprehensive discussion of the three main parties of the Italian right: Berlusconi’s Forza Italia, the xenophobic and regionalist populist Northern League and the post-fascist National Alliance. The book assesses the implications of this controversial right for the Italian democratic system and examines how the social and political peculiarities of Italy have allowed such political formations to emerge and enjoy repeated electoral success. Framed in a comparative perspective, the authors: explore the nature of the Italian right in the context of right-wing parties and populist phenomena elsewhere in other advanced democracies, drawing comparisons and providing broader explanations. locate the parties of the Italian right within the existing theoretical conceptions of right-wing and populist parties, utilising a multi-method approach, including a content analysis of party programmes. highlight the importance of political and discursive opportunities in explaining the success of the Italian right, and the agency role of a political leadership that has skilfully shaped and communicated an ideological package to exploit these opportunities. Providing an excellent insight into a key European nation, this work provides a thoughtful and stimulating contribution to the research on the Italian right, and its implications for democratic politics. 2009-06-26 time of publication of the book, [-Routledge-]"

Original Synopsis

"Party Attitudes Towards the EU in the Member States has a total of 216 pages which are papers from writer 'Nicolò Conti'. In a moment where the EU is facing an important number of challenges, there is growing interest in understanding how parties influence the way Europe evolves as a political issue, notably how parties structure domestic competition over European issues and they mobilise sentiments in referenda over European integration .

Italian Politics

Original Synopsis

"Italian Politics has a total of 276 pages which are papers from writer 'Mark Gilbert, Gianfranco Pasquino'. In 1999, Italy experienced another year of political uncertainty. The centre-left coalition government was weakened by infighting throughout the year and paid a high electoral price for its failure to present a common front to the electorate. In June, Silvio Berlusconi's Liberty Pole coalition won substantial victories in local elections including a symbolic triumph in Bologna, a stronghold of the Italian left. In December, bickering inside his parliamentary majority forced Massimo D'Alema, the prime minister, to reshuffle his cabinet. This was the first government crisis to be handled by Carlo Azeglio Ciampi, who became the tenth President of the Republic in May 1999. In the autumn, Giulio Andreotti, a seven-times prime minister, was acquitted of having colluded with the Sicilian Mafia, and with having ordered the murder. 2000-01 time of publication of the book, [-Berghahn Books-]"
