Politics and Policy in Greece by Kevin Featherstone
Book DescriptionThis rare focus on the politics of contemporary Greece explores in particular the country's processes of public policy-making. It is more than thirty years since the restoration of democracy in Greece and in this period the country has undergone a number of major changes. Domestic political tensions have arisen from the pressures of 'Europeanization' as a consequence of Greece's membership in the European Union. EU membership has helped define a 'modernization' project, latterly associated with Premier Costas Simitis, which clashes with traditional practices and paradigms. In addition, other challenges have arisen: of a multi-ethnic society, of the loss of faith in old ideologies and of the passage of old divisions. Greece now faces pressure to adapt to the external environment, as well as to the constraints of the will and capability of the domestic system. Politics and Policy in Greece addresses core issues, such as: * How far has the politics of 'modernization' penetrated Greek society? * How far have reforms to state-economy relations, welfare systems and constitutional rights reflected a liberal agenda and how far have they reflected traditional concerns? * How has 'modernization' affected Greece's relations with the European Union? Containing expert overviews and detailed case studies of the dynamics of domestic politics, this accessible and informative volume is essential reading for both Greeks and non-Greeks alike.

A new study of the international and local politics surrounding the Muslim minority of Western Thrace (Greece) in the 1940s, based on previously unseen archival material.

Limits of Europeanization, Hardback (September 2008)
An innovative case study of one of the most recalcitrant member states of the EU: Greece. Based on extensive empirical research, the book relates its evidence to two major conceptual frames: 'Europeanization' and 'varieties of capitalism'. These are complementary and one compensates for the limitations of the other.
Politics of Europeanization, Paperback (June 2003)» View all books by Kevin Featherstone
This text looks at the political aspects of European integration from the point of view of domestic politics. In doing so, it goes beyond the classic analysis of "how policies are made in Brussels" and raises instead the question "what is the power of Europe in national contexts"?
