"Modern Italy" provides a comprehensive introduction to contemporary Italian politics and the development of public policy in Italy. Paul Furlong provides a detailed examination of how Italy's political institutions have developed since 1945 and how they now function. He explains Italian policy processes through the 1980s and considers in detail the way in which Italy's recent history has affected its path through political and economic development.
Paul Furlong places the current upheaval in Italian politics in its historical context, analyzing the practical results of the policy-making process in key policy areas. He illuminates the Italian case by applying a comparative framework throughout. Furlong shifts away from the traditional focus of Italian political studies on the machinations of party politics to examine how Italy's constitutional and administrative structures have contributed to its climate of political instability. "Modern Italy" presents an understanding of the relationship between the political and economic life of Italy.
