The course focuses on the analysis on the inner contradictions of the Greek political system after the Second World War, the functions of the State, the position and the role of political parties, the nature of electoral rivalry, social and political-ideological divisions, the role of the Army and the Monarchy, the dominant political ideology aw well as the dominated ones and, finally the forms of (under)-development of social organizations and civil society. As far as the military dictatorship of 1967-1974 is concerned, the course will attempt to delve on a wider political insight of this particular regime brought about by violent means.
