This book sets out the background to Greece's current political and economic crisis, examining its three decades of stopstart reforms and their political and institutional consequences.Ever since Greece's 1974 transition to democracy there has been constant talk of reforms. Major changes in its economy, society and polity have attempted to bring Greek institutions and policies in line with more developed West European countries. Some reforms have come to fruition (creation of theNHS, Eurozone entry, banking liberalization, some privatizations), others have recurred over the years (educational reform), while others have been spasmodic and elusive (pension and civil service reforms).
