Bibliography Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary This work addresses a large question in one small, but highly problematic case: how can a prime minister establish control and coordination across his or her government? The Greek system of government sustains a 'paradox of power' at its very core. The Constitution provides the prime minister with extensive and often unchecked powers. Yet, the operational structures, processes and resources around the prime minister undermine their power to manage the government. Studying all the main premierships from 1974 to 2009, the book argues that the Greek prime minister has been 'an emperor without clothes'.
