Spanish Politics Today

Front Cover
Manchester University Press, 1999 - Political Science - 174 pages
In comparison to many other areas of European political studies, contemporary Spain has received less attention than it deserves. This book aims to fill this gap in at least two important respects. It not only describes and analyzes the institutions of government on the Spanish political landscape, but also explores the distinctive traits of its policy processes at regional, national and European levels. Many of the issues which have dominated Spanish political agendas in the 1980s and 1990s are discussed throughout this book.
