The Politics and Social Structure of Southern Europe (International Perspectives on Europe). by James Kurth, James Petras. Published January 24, 1994 by Berg Publishers.

Two perspectives dominate in the debate on European integration policy in the unified Germany. The first focuses on domestic interinstitutional tensions and ideological inhibitions that restrict German leadership in the European Union. By contrast, the second highlights the dominant position of the German economy and the weakening of external constraints in the wake of unification.

Perspectives on Politics seeks to provide a space for broad and synthetic discussion within the political science profession and between the profession and the broader scholarly and reading publics. Such discussion necessarily draws on and contributes to the scholarship published in the more specialized journals that dominate our discipline.

Second, the book focuses on Europe and South America. I presume those are the authors' areas of expertise. Alfred Stepan, the first rector and president of the Central European University, is Gladstone Professor of Government and Fellow of All Souls College, Oxford University.

Southern Europe thus became an attractive destination for non-European migrants, especially those from North Africa, Latin America, Asia, and-after the fall of the Iron Curtain-Eastern Europe (Castles et al. 2014).

Spain, for example, registered the return of 451,000 citizens during this period, of which 94 % had resided in another EU country (Barou 2006).

Europe’s responses to its debt crisis have stimulated widespread social unrest. Severe austerity measures have spawned street protests throughout the continent and brought changes of government in Greece, Italy, and Spain. And by refusing to organize and engage in normal politics, the OWS forces ­dissipated-leaving normal two-party gridlock in Washington after the ­November 2012 elections. As Europe, Japan, and the United States struggle, will emerging countries like China, India, and Brazil gain more political influence in international institutions?
