This wide-ranging book seeks to unravel the complexities of post-1992 Italian democracy. It takes as its point of departure the dramatic political tensions of the early 1990s and evaluates these against the background of an analysis of the 'First Republic' that predates these changes.

'Italian Politics provides a comprehensive, articulated, convincing assessment of the new political system in Italy ... It provides and makes readily available to fellow Italian politics scholars a wealth of data ... The book is both intellectually sophisticated and historically detailed. The argument that the authors present is effectively supported by the data presented in the text, without being merely data-driven. Data are never presented without being properly contextualized. The authors' attentiveness to historical details ... testifies not only to an almost encyclopaedic knowledge of Italian politics but also to a profound understanding of it. Its analytic merits, its sophistication, its attention to details and its wealth of data make Italian Politics a must read for all Italian politics scholars.' Riccardo Pelizzo, Modern Italy
