Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book charts the evolution of clientelist practices in several western European countries. Through the historical and comparative analysis of countries as diverse as Sweden and Greece, England and Spain, France and Italy, Iceland and the Netherlands, the authors study both the "supply-side" and the "demand-side" of clientelism. This approach contends that clientelism is a particular mix of particularism and universalism, in which interests are aggregated at the level of the individual and his family "particularism," but in which all interests can potentially find expression and accommodation in "universalism."

Synopsis:

Using a historical and comparative analysis of countries as diverse as Sweden, Greece, England, Spain, France, Italy, Iceland and the Netherlands, this book charts the evolution of clientelist practices in several western European countries in order to identify the circumstances under which these practices are retained, transformed or eradicated.
