The search for good government understanding the paradox of Italian democracy by Filippo Sabetti ( )
16 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and held by 1,295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Observers have frequently noted that Italians seem skilled at many things - but not at good government. As a people Italians are said to have flair, panache, and tenacity, while as a polity Italy is in shambles. This paradoxical view of politics can be found in Italian history as far back as Guicciardini and Machiavelli. Nor is it unique to Italy, for the social dilemma of "rational individuals and irrational society" has, since Hobbes, produced a large literature on social theory and comparative politics, as well as numerous questionable suggestions for policy. In The Search for Good Government Filippo Sabetti examines Italian politics to reassess habitual presumptions in comparative politics, opening new territory in the art and science of institutional analysis
Village politics and the Mafia in Sicily by Filippo Sabetti ( )
12 editions published between 1984 and 2003 in English and held by 1,036 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In Village Politics and the Mafia in Sicily Filippo Sabetti details the emergence, evolution, and collapse of a local mafia and antimafia in a historical, "before-after" perspective, providing an in-depth analysis of the effect of the abolition of feudalism in 1812, the unification of Italy in 1860, and subsequent regime changes on village politics in Sicily. Refocusing the study of village politics and the mafia by extending rational choice institutionalism to Italian history and politics, Sabetti shows what can happen when those acting for the state regard ordinary people as passive voices in the game of life."--BOOK JACKET
