Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

'Historians of the period would be well served by reading this book, in addition to anyone interested in democratisation and comparative politics. The fact that Sherlock's clear prose is comparatively free of jargon will be a relief for specialists and non-specialists alike.' - Michael Westrate, Europe-Asia Studies
