Overview

The unraveling of communist regimes in Europe since 1989 raised hopes for a brighter future of freedom and peace in those countries and around the world. This work combines in-depth analysis of individual countries with essays offering the perspectives of participants in the transitions. It conceptualizes and provides an overview of four different patterns of political development which have followed the end of communist rule. The studies provide new insights into the ongoing struggles among three competing political currents: those seeking democracy and market-oriented economies; former elements of the communist power structure including some in the communist party, the upper echelons of government and economic managers, the secret police, and the military who seek to retain or expand their power; and ultranationalist or ethnic extremists advocating the dominance of their particular group. Countries covered are Russia, Poland, Hungary, Czech and Slovak Federative Republic, Romania, Bulgaria, Yugoslavia, and Albania. Contributors: Jozsef Antall, Vadim Bakatin, Thomas G. Baker, Eniko Bollobas, Peter A.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Brings together selected works produced by the Program on Transitions to Democracy at George Washington U., combining analysis with essays offering the views and judgments of participants in the transitions. All of the contributors, American and European alike, offer paeans to democracy and the marketplace. Surprisingly, the Europeans are more critically analytical, the Americans more self-righteously ideological. Paper edition (unseen), $24.50. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
