Political Conflict in Southern Europe: Regulation, Regression, and Morphogenesis

Synopsis

Although the control or regulation of political conflict is a constant concern of governments and a source of substantial speculation, empirical investigation of systems of regulation is a relatively recent enterprise. How destabilizing events such as separatism, transnational disputes and decolonization are translated into political conflict through economic, political, and social systems is explored in this in-depth study of eight nations in southern Europe for the period 1946 to 1986. This book is especially relevant in light of the recent conflicts that have exploded into civil war in Yugoslavia.
