"Developments in Central and East European Politics 4" brings together specially commissioned chapters by a team of leading international scholars focusing on the key features of the political systems that have emerged following the transition to postcommunist rule and the enlargement of the European Union. Full attention is given to the pattern of events in individual nations, but the main emphasis is on the framework of politics across the region - constitutions, leaderships, parliaments, parties and electoral systems - and the process of politics, including political participation, civil society, economic change, and the quality of democratic government within and beyond the region.
Reviews of the previous editions: '[A] welcome addition to the literature... [This] collection of thoughtful and informative essays by specialists [is] suited to a general readership as well as to students and their instructors... [T]he agile fine-tuning of its editors pulls all the material together into a highly-readable presentation that suits the need of students with little or no prior knowledge about the region...' - Minton F. Goldman, Slavic Review
