This book provides a unique and comprehensive guide to Spain's political and economic institutions. The authors show how these have evolved over the past decade to reflect the increasing regionalization of public life and genuine integration of the country into European Union institutions. Informed comment at the end of each chapter balances detailed descriptions of the institutions concerned, and careful cross-referencing ensures an understanding of the key links among organizations. This is an expanded, revised and fully-updated edition of the authors' book Spain: A Guide to Political and Economic Institutions, (CUP 1987).

Industry Reviews

P. Vannicelli, Choice "Newton and Donaghy's work serves as a reference source that list and describes the main institutional framework of the post-Franco era...scholars specializing in the institutional aspects of European Studies are likely to find all the information they require in this reference work."
