Stabilising fragile democracies : comparing new party systems in Southern and Eastern Europe by Geoffrey Pridham( )

19 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 1,163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Political parties play a central, if not the central, political role in parliamentary democracies. They are also likely to play a key role in the establishment of new parliamentary democracies. This volume provides a systematic comparison of the democratic transitions in both Eastern and Southern Europe from this point of view. There are four main themes concerning the role of parties that are examined: "coping with the past" (party identities and inheritances), the formation and performance of new democratic political elites, parties and alliances and their electoral behaviour. These themes guide the case studies, (which are written in comparative perspective), in four countries in both Southern and Eastern Europe. The countries covered include Italy, Spain, Greece, Portugal, Hungary, Romania, Poland and Bulgaria. Democratization is a very complex process, but what the study of political parties does is to focus on an area that links many of them. This book is intended to be a guide to students wishing to make sense of democratization and the role of political parties in that process

Developments in East European politics( Book )

17 editions published in 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Formerly a part of the Soviet empire, the countries of Central and Eastern Europe are now in the process of a complex transition from authoritarianism to more open systems based on political democracy and the market. Developments in East European Politics takes as its starting point the dramatic developments of the late 1980s and early 1990s and the factors that have helped to shape the region as a whole, focusing in detail on the changing politics of Poland, Hungary, Bulgaria and the successor republics in the former Yugoslavia and Czechoslovakia. At the core of the book is a set of comparative chapters considering developments in voting behaviour, the emerging party systems, political leadership and participation, economic reform and social policy in Eastern Europe. The volume concludes with an assessment of the political science of post-communist Eastern Europe, a consideration of its place in the wider world and a presentation of selected voices of the people of Eastern Europe themselves. Written by leading specialists from both sides of the Atlantic, this introductory but authoritative text provides an up-to-date and unrivalled guide to the forces that are reshaping half a continent

Central Europe since 1945 by Paul G Lewis( Book )

17 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Central Europe - here, Poland, the German Democratic Republic, Czechoslovakia and Hungary - is at the centre of international attention since the Soviet collapse. An understanding of its postwar history is critical to an appreciation of the challenges facing its present rulers. This is an engrossing account of the installation, development, operation and eventual downfall of its (very different) communist regimes, and the transition to the freedoms and uncertainties of the post-Soviet world. The book covers political, economic, social and cultural change, emphasising the crucial relationships
Global politics : globalization and the nation-state by Anthony G McGrew( Book )

16 editions published between 1991 and 2013 in English and held by 357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This innovative new text is derived from a highly successful Open University course of the same title. It takes as a dominant theme the contested issue of 'globalization' (the apparent intensification of global patterns of inter-dependence) and its implications for the autonomy of the modern nation-state. Following a conceptual introduction, which critically examines the theoretical debates framing the study of world politics, the work is structured around four key processes of globalization which the authors identify as being the central determinants of contemporary global politics

Democracy and civil society in Eastern Europe : selected papers from the fourth World Congress for Soviet and East European Studies, Harrogate, 1990 by Paul G Lewis( Book )

19 editions published between 1992 and 1996 in English and German and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book presents an informed and wide-ranging examination of issues surrounding the development and future prospects of civil society in Eastern Europe. The contributions, mostly by leading East European scholars, relate the key concept of civil society to the processes that led to the collapse of communism and which bear on prospects for the establishment of a democratic order throughout the region. The development of the concept is placed in historical and comparative context and subjected to critical scrutiny in the light of recent events in Eastern Europe. The rise of a civil society in Eastern Europe and evaluation of its future prospects is related to questions like those surrounding economic policy and reform, elite formation and leadership recruitment and the nature of the women's movement in the region. The book presents valuable theoretical insights into the dynamics of East European communism and the nature of the post-communist order."--BOOK JACKET

Europeanising party politics? : comparative perspectives on Central and Eastern Europe( Book )

8 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book is a comparative, empirically-based study of party politics in contemporary Central and Eastern Europe that seeks to define the impact of European Union membership in this area. The question of Europeanisation has been intensively debated over recent years, but no firm conclusion has been reached. This collection of rigorously comparative contributions directs attention to a number of key areas in the attempt to isolate cases where Europe has made a difference. Successive chapters examine how new parties are managed by the state and the ways in which parties colonise the state itself, the role of transnational cooperation and the influence pan-European parties have on national organisations. The book goes on to consider patterns of party-oriented participation in the new democracies and dimensions of electoral turnout, dimensions of inter-party competition and identification of the specific features of post-communist party politics, examination of the key case of the extreme right and the conditions under which it tends to emerge, detailed analysis of the quality of political representation in the new democratic context, and discussion of how EU constraints are likely to undermine the prospects of stable party linkages. A conclusion seeks to establish how far Europe and EU policy has succeeded in influencing Central and East European developments."--Publisher's website
