Abstract

East and Central Europe has experienced dramatic changes since the collapse of communism. The all-new edition of this market-leading text brings together specially-commissioned chapters by leading authorities to provide a systematic assessment of the continuing evolution of politics and governance across a highly diverse region. As well as chapters on the major countries, there are cross-cutting assessments of constitutional issues, executive leadership, parties and elections and public policy, and a conclusion analysing patterns of democratisation in a broader comparative context.
