About this book

Focusing on the formative 1974-1981 years, the central theme of this book is the building of democracy in contemporary Greece and the role played in it by the newly-emergent political parties. Although all main parties are examined according to their importance, attention is chiefly given to conservative New Democracy which, led for the greatest part by charismatic Karamanlis, held office during these years of democratic transition. This study also offers a systematic analysis of today's political system in Greece, its strengths and deficiencies, and its prospects for the future.

Reviews

'This is an outstanding contribution to the comparative politics and sociology and not only to the study of Greek society and politics. It contributes to the growing field of the study of transitions to, and consolidation of, new democracies and our understanding of the role of Prime Minister Karemanlis. It is also one of the few monographic studies of a conservative party: Nea Demokretia, that has been able to institutionalize itself and to play a continuous role. It combines a theoretical approach with solid field work in a richly textured society.' - Juan J. Linz, Sterling Professor of Political and Social Science, Yale University.
