State of the art: 
<p>The Semi-presidential State is now widely recognized as as form of the State. There is a vast comparative literature on the subject. &nbsp;But we lack a thematic reappraisal of the institutional problems, which arose in the countries where it started; we also lack a description of the World expansion of this form of Government in Africa and Asia, whixh takes into account both the thematic and the regional&nbsp; problems.</p>
