"These excellent analytical essays are complemented by a long documentary appendix giving useful statistics on population trends, immigration, public finances, employment, education, elections and referendums. There is also a helpful bibliography. An essential reference tool for anyone concerned with the stat and State of Italy."  ·  Modern Italy


In 2002, the second Berlusconi government, given its parliamentary strength, should have been able to implement its ambitious reform program. This 18th edition of Italian Politics examines the events of that year in light of the opportunities and the domestic and international constraints faced by Italy's center-right government. This volume discusses the actions of the Italian president, the prime minister's function within the cabinet, the overall behaviour of the government vis-á-vis Parliament, majority-opposition clashes in the legislature, foreign affairs, and economic and immigration policy. Moreover, the volume focuses on selected heated issues, including Berlusconi's conflict with the judiciary, reform of the labor market, evolution of banking foundations, and the crisis of Fiat, the nation's largest manufacturing group.

Jean Blondel is Visiting Professor at Siena University and a ,member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.

Pablo Segatti is a Temporary Professor in the Political Science Faculty at Milan University.
