Democracy and the State in the New Southern Europe

Edited by Richard Gunther, P. Nikiforos Diamandouros, and Dimitri A. Sotiropoulos

Oxford Studies in Democratization

This volume analyzes the evolution of selected public policies and the changing roles and structure of the state in Greece, Italy, Portugal, and Spain since the 1960s. It makes a major contribution to work on recent democratic regime transition in southern Europe, demonstrating how the state has responded and adapted to the challenges and pressures associated with the overarching processes of democratization, socio-economic development, and Europeanization.
