Meaglia explains how, after making a country by country analysis of the birth and growth of the parties of the European ‘new right’ since the seventies, Mastropaolo makes a careful critique of the principal definitions of them and how he seems to prefer the one that sums them up as a particularly radical and aggressive form of ‘anti-politics’. Their success in Italy would appear to be largely due to the incapacity of the political class and the traditional parties and their lack of culture, character, foresight and sagacity, which has rendered them incapable of tackling the new parties’ ideological offensive. According to Meaglia, the hopes Mastropaolo lays in the dissemination of practices of ‘deliberative democracy’ as an antidote to the Italian malaise would appear to be somewhat faint, at least for the moment.
