Summary

East and Central Europe have experienced dramatic changes since the collapse of communism. Developments in Central and East European Politics 3 brings together leading specialists from Europe and North America to offer an up-to-date, comprehensive, and authoritative assessment of the continuing evolution of politics and governance in this diverse region. This revised third edition, like its successful predecessor Developments in East European Politics 2 (1998), offers a guide to the common patterns and the varying characteristics of a group of states struggling with the transformations of boundaries and values within a redefined continent

Providing a comparative analysis of current economic and social issues, this new edition shifts focus away from the transitional period immediately following the collapse of communism to the emerging post-communist political systems. Contributors examine the changing infrastructure and patterns of contemporary politics, looking at constitutions, leadership, parliaments, political parties, and electoral behavior. They also explore the region's relationship with the wider world and the prospects for democratic rule. The book covers all of Central and Eastern Europe, with specific chapters on Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, the Balkans, and the Ukraine.
