This second volume of "Italian politics" concentrates on the events of 1986, a year that proved to be of great political significance and which saw the fruition of major social and economic trends in Italy. The work documents in detail the events and changes, places them in historical and theoretical context, and offers expert analysis by the contributing authors. It is intended that the work will provide the material necessary to identify some of the structural elements of the Italian political system, and thus to develop an objective model to explain the enigma of Italian politics.
