Stabilising fragile democracies : comparing new party systems in Southern and Eastern Europe by Geoffrey Pridham( )

21 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 1,237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book provides a systematic comparison of the democratic transition in both southern and eastern Europe. The role of the parties is a crucial determinant as to whether a new democracy will put down deep and long-lasting roots. The book is directed towards four main themes - 'coping with the past' (party identities and inheritances); the formation and performance of new democratic political elites; parties and alliances/coalitions; and their electoral behaviour. These themes are discussed comparatively with the aid of four case studies from both southern and eastern Europe. The countries covered include Italy, Spain, Greece, Portugal, Hungary, Romania, Poland and Bulgaria." "Democratisation is a very complex process because it operates on so many levels, but by studying political parties you can focus on an area that covers many of them. Students of European politics will find this an invaluable guide to recent events in eastern Europe as well as a means to understanding the process of democratisation more generally."--BOOK JACKET

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

13 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 1,202 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

Securing democracy : political parties and democratic consolidation in southern Europe by Geoffrey Pridham( Book )

28 editions published between 1990 and 2017 in English and held by 396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When this book first published in 1990, several 'new' democracies were emerging in Southern Europe. Italy, Portugal, Spain and Greece were generally seen as conforming to the western European model of liberal democracy. But the process of democratization is a gradual one, and each national democracy is moulded by its own political, social, and economic characteristics. In particular, the active role of national political parties is of prime importance. The contributors to this volume focus on party systems in the democracies of Greece, Spain and Portugal since the end of their authoritarian re
Coalitional behaviour in theory and practice : an inductive model for Western Europe by Geoffrey Pridham( Book )

17 editions published between 1986 and 2010 in English and held by 387 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

Designing democracy : EU enlargement and regime change in post-communist Europe by Geoffrey Pridham( Book )

21 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Designing Democracy is the first systematic and in-depth study of the effects of the EU's democratic conditionality, originally set out in the Copenhagen conditions of 1993, on the new political systems of Central and Eastern Europe." "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 315 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
