The dynamics of democratization : a comparative approach by Geoffrey Pridham( )

14 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 1,227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pridham views the democratization process as a whole, not just as either democratic transition or subsequent regime consolidation, as is the case with much of the literature on this subject, and, while his major concern is political regime change, other forms of transformation, such as economic or state-building, are included where these are especially important. He uses the rich diversity of the European experience in this area to apply an 'interactive dynamics' theory of democratization and proposes this as a means of overcoming the deficiencies of existing theories, which have proved inadequate for explaining the ongoing democratization and transformation processes in Central and Eastern Europe in particular."--Jacket

Coalitional behaviour in theory and practice : an inductive model for Western Europe by Geoffrey Pridham( Book )

18 editions published between 1986 and 2010 in English and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, first published in 1986, takes a fresh look at coalition theory in the light of the European coalition experience. This volume attempts to marry theory and practice by avoiding the pure abstraction of the formal coalition theories on the one hand and the over-descriptiveness of some of the empirical work on the other. This volume of theoretical or comparative chapters and national case-studies presents and applies an inductive model for coalitional behaviour in the form of a multi-dimensional framework based on the hypothesis of political parties as the central actors in coalition politics. In doing so, it aims at encouraging a fresh direction in coalition research by focusing on coalitional behaviour as a continuous and dynamic process rather than one confined to the formation of coalitions, as well as by overcoming the isolation of coalition studies

"Using new material drawn from extensive elite interviews in several of these countries as well as Brussels, the book throws much light on how far the EU enlargement process has really strengthened these new post-Communist democracies following their transitions in the 1990s."--Jacket
Political parties and coalitional behaviour in Italy by Geoffrey Pridham( Book )

10 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Coalitional behaviour is central to the Italian system of government but has been largely neglected by research. As a result, coalitions in post-war Italy have been viewed as simply unstable, short-lived and incohesive. In this book, the author corrects this one-sidedness by analysing Italian coalition politics as a continuous and dynamic process. His comprehensive, interpretative approach takes account of other new developments in coalition studies and relates his subject both to the literature on Italian politics and to the comparative study of party systems in liberal democracies. An int
