The Oxford Handbook of Modern Greek Politics

10/2020: Prof. Dimitri A. Sotiropoulos with Prof. Kevin Featherston edited "The Oxford Handbook of Modern Greek Politics", Oxford: OUP, 2020. https://global.oup.com/academic/product/the-oxford-handbook-of-modern-greek-politics-9780198825104?cc=gr&lang=en&

This volume aims to provide an unprecedented breadth of analysis on the development of modern Greek politics, especially from the restoration of democracy in 1974 to the present day. Over forty-three chapters, contributors provide authoritative accounts of what is known about a particular area. Never before has such a volume been produced, in any language. This is not intended as a student textbook, but as a scholarly reference for all who are interested in contemporary Greece. As such, it provides a depth of analysis couched within comparative and conceptual frames, to link the case of Greece to a wider audience, especially those already familiar with a broader political science literature. In its authoritative and reflective essays, it is hoped that the volume may serve as a point of common reference for some time to come. Its essays are structured across a set of inter-connecting themes: conceptual frames by which to understand modern Greek politics; political institutions; party political traditions; political and social interests; public policy; external relations; and political leaders. With this breadth, the volume takes an eclectic approach in terms of historical, conceptual, and methodological interpretation. Its breadth offers analyses relevant not only to political science, but also economics, international relations, law, sociology, and social policy.
