Summaries
Bowker Data Service Summary
The author believes that the concept of a 'semiperiphery' provides a useful framework for the study of the political economy of 'middle income' nations. He addresses the two examples of Spain and Greece and shows how their respective foreign policies can be analysed from a world-system approach.
Long Description
Tayfur's theoretical approach to foreign policy analysis is original and represents an extremely valuable addition to a field which is under-theorised. It develops the World-System theory of Wallerstein and Arrighi. In applying this theory to two case studies, Tayfur offers a detailed account of the domestic and foreign policies of Greece and Spain after the Second World War. He illuminates in particular their turn from a foreign policy orientation towards the United States to a growing identification with, and eventual integration into, the European Community.This original book is pertinent to a range of contemporary debates and suitable to feature on the reading lists of every course on foreign policy analysis and international political theory. In addition, students of comparative politics, political transition and Mediterranean studies, will find this book particularly useful.
