About the book:

A guide to the labyrinth of Italian politics and the social forces that shaped them, this book is recommended reading for students of Italian and European politics. Following the "sweet revolution" that swept away the political class that that had dominated politics in Italy since the last war, Hilary Partridge provides an analysis and update of the tumultuous events of the 1990s. Topics covered in the book include the legacy of the Risorgimento, the liberal era and fascism; Italian constitutional arrangements and the ongoing debate over their reform; the Christian Democratic "regime" and the long-standing exclusion from power of the major party of opposition; clientalism and corruption; right wing conspiracies, terrorism, and the Mafia; economic, social and political rights; the collapse of the traditional parties and the reshaping of the party system.
