Description

Following the major upheavals of 1993, the Italian political system suffered intense aftershocks tied to the renewal of the political class in 1994. There were shattering changes in the party system--in particular the birth of Berlusconi's Forza Italia--and the first majoritarian parliament was established. In this latest edition of Italian Politics all the crucial issues that defined Italian political and social life during 1994 are discussed and interpreted by renowned scholars from Italy, the United States, and Britain, who provide an indispensable guide for understanding Italy's transformation.
