Description:
"The following paragraphs analyze those western European countries (Belgium, Spain, the United Kingdom, and Italy) where territorial claims have made a successful cleavage at the national level, and where autonomist parties have successfully influenced the central government's agenda. We will deal with the factors shaping the (re) emergence of the territorial cleavage, with the parties that have embodied and exploited this cleavage, and with the institutional changes they have promoted. We take these cases in order of formation of their national states, and so the order of presumable birth of political tensions according to the cleavage centre-periphery theory. The first case is the United Kingdom, born of an aggregation process begun in the 16th century; then Belgium and Italy, founded in the 19th century as unitary states (respectively in 1831 and 1861). Spain has been considered last because the Franco regime 'froze' the free expression of regionalism at the political level"--P. 5.
Introduction -- From the centre to the periphery : Scotland and Wales versus England -- The case of Belgium : the federalization of the political system and of the state -- Italy : from the southern to the northern question -- Spain : centre-periphery, the epitome of cleavage? -- Regionalism as post-industrial "culture"?
