The New Italian Republic
From the Fall of the Berlin Wall to BerlusconieBook - 1996
Recent Italian political life has been transformed by the demise of the Italian Communist Party, the growth of the federalist Northern Leagues and the collapse of the Christian Democrats, the Socialists and their government allies in the wake of the Tangentopoli (Kickback City) scandals. "The New Italian Republic" charts the breakdown of the old party system and examines the changed political climate that allowed Silvio Berlusconi and his allies to emerge as the new political masters of Italy. This book combines up to date information with reflection on longer term trends and problems. "The New Italian Republic" will be of interest to any reader who wishes to make sense of the contemporary Italian political landscape.
