By P. Vincent Bucci
Italy is omitted of such a lot modern comparative stories of political structures. This omission will be due neither to any intrinsic unimportance of Italy in Europe, nor to the absence of parallel similarities and fluctuate ences - the necessities of comparative clarification - among the Italian and different Western political structures. it can be end result of the paucity of case experiences of Italian politics, upon which comparisons must be established. Professor Bucci's ebook will give a contribution towards overcoming this shortage. not just is Italy under-represented in comparative reviews of put up conflict ecu politics, yet there's additionally a scarcity of monographs facing specific points of Italian politics because the founding of the Republic, particularly in English. i am hoping that Dr. Bucci's paintings, that is established completely upon unique Italian resources, indications the start of exploration, extra systematic than hitherto, of the goldmine for case reviews which post-war Italian politics offers to political scientists.
