About this book

An innovative case study of one of the most recalcitrant member states of the EU: Greece. Based on extensive empirical research, the book relates its evidence to two major conceptual frames: 'Europeanization' and 'varieties of capitalism'. These are complementary and one compensates for the limitations of the other.

Reviews

'Everyone who is puzzled by the political trajectories of European integration and the dilemmas of Greek politics and public policy should read this book. Featherstone and Papadimitriou bring the theoretical framework of Europeanization to bear on the empirical analysis of political change in Greece, covering political structures as well as policy dynamics. Their conclusions will interest all scholars of European integration and comparative public policy, as well as students taking Masters programmes in European Union politics and European politics and society.' - Claudio Radaelli, Director, Centre for European Governance, and Jean Monnet Chair in EU Policy Analysis, Exeter University, UK

'...a concise but rich description of basic approaches and methodological problems that characterise the research field of Europeanisation...Featherstone and Papadimitriou enrich the poor literature on Greece and the Mediterranean countries model and go a long way towards contributing to upgrading the Europeanisation research agenda.' - Dimitris Bourikos, University of Athens, South European Society and Politics

'...[a] thought-provoking volume...' - Political Studies Review

'... this book sheds light on the limits of Europeanisation and is recommended to advanced postgraduate students of Europeanisation and Greek politics.' - Didem Buhari-Gulmez, Royal Holloway, University of London, Political Studies Review
