Description - Integrating Southern Europe by Otto Holman

Integrating Southern Europe presents a stimulating comparative analysis of the position of Spain within the European Union and within the global political economy. It combines a historical perspective - looking at the Spanish political economy throughout the twentieth century, with an analysis of the process of democratization in Southern Europe and Spain's increasingly trans-European outlook. The Author uses the distinctive theoretical insights of the Amsterdam School of International Political Economy to illuminate the case of Southern Europe. He traces the progression of a transnational power configuration between social forces and the emergence of transnational concepts of control, arguing that these factors and the linked factor of transnationalization of civil socierty were of paramount importance in the smooth transition from dictatorship to democracy in the 1970s and in the subsequent integration of Southern Europe into the European Community in the 1980s. The book will be of great interest both to those readers whose primary interests are in international political economy, and to students and scholars of Spanish politcs who will find this a revealing thoughtfu and serious contribution to the literature.
