The crisis of the Italian state : from the origins of the Cold War to the fall of Berlusconi by Patrick McCarthy( Book )

28 editions published between 1986 and 1997 in English and German and held by 574 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The current governmental crisis in Italy is not a historical anomaly in that country, but rather just one more development in an evolving crisis of government that began with the close of World War II. As the Christian Democrats came to power, the hope of the Italian people was pinned on their promises for a renewed Italy. As time progressed, it became obvious that the trust of the people had been misplaced. In the first full English language account of the Clean Hands crisis, Patrick McCarthy finds the roots of Berlusconi's rise and fall in the practices of clientalism, the machinations of the Mafia, the corporate direction of Fiat, the edicts of the Vatican, and even the organization of the Italian soccer league. Showing how the tentacles of political corruption reached into every aspect of Italian life, Patrick McCarthy weaves a fascinating story that will be of great interest to any reader of current affairs

The end of post-war politics in Italy : the landmark 1992 elections by Gianfranco Pasquino( Book )

7 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The end of Italy's Communist Party and the decline of the Christian Democratic Party are reflections of profound changes taking place within the political and cultural fabric of that country and in Europe as a whole. In recent years, an increasingly well educated public has become intensely dissatisfied with Italy's "party system," yet a widespread belief still exists in the international community that the nation's domestic political system is irredeemably calcified. In this volume, eminent American and European scholars challenge the prevailing wisdom as they analyze the 1992 elections and the far-reaching impact of the Amato government's reform efforts, the devaluation of the lira, and shake-ups within the parties. Arguing that the losses suffered by the ruling parties in the elections accelerated the disintegration of the political order, the contributors show how the resulting exposure of corruption - an integral part of the post-war system - created overwhelming public demand for institutional reform

Language, politics, and writing : stolentelling in Western Europe by Patrick McCarthy( Book )

11 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Patrick McCarthy, an expert on the culture of Western Europe, looks at the history of the twentieth century by wedding together literary and political events and texts, and examines the ways in which they interact and influence each other. Refreshingly free of jargon, this book interweaves literary, aesthetic, mass media, and political and historical themes. In Language, Politics, and Writing, Patrick McCarthy provides readers with an intellectual commentary on the persistent cultural traditions in European nations, highlighting the fact that these traditions have been enriched by the "dialogue" of regional integration. Patrick McCarthy highlights particular points in the political history of Western Europe and analyzes a writer or work from the same period to illustrate compelling connections between literature and politics."--Book jacketT
