Italy by Frederic Spotts

Book Description

Italy is the world's sixth economic power, lies in a key geopolitical position, and was a founding member of NATO and the European Community. Yet of all the major European states Italy is the least understood and studied. This book provides the only up-to-date survey of the Italian political scene during the forty years since World War II. It describes the inner-dynamics of the political parties, the day-to-day functioning of the governing institutions, and the interaction of the country's economic, social, and political life. It shows how a political system, riven with difficulties and seemingly in a continual crisis, survives and prospers - in some ways more successfully than its purportedly better-governed neighbours. Based on the authors' first-hand observations of Italian politics, the book offers a valuable insight into a subtle and complex, but fascinating political world.

Books By Author Frederic Spotts

Shameful Peace by Frederic Spotts Shameful Peace, Paperback (February 2010)

The German occupation of France from 1940 to 1945 presented wrenching challenges for the nation's artists and intellectuals. Some were able to flee the country; those who remained, responded in various ways. This book provides a full account of how France's artistic leaders coped under the crushing German presence.

Bayreuth by Frederic Spotts Bayreuth, Paperback (March 1996)

This study is a critical analysis of the performances and productions of the operatic festival established by Richard Wagner in 1876. Around this artistic history the book traces the institution's association with nationalism and racism, and its postwar liberation from its anti-semitic past.
