Exploring the controversies and problems surrounding post-communist transitions, this multi-disciplinary volume develops a strong theoretical framework as it moves between general issues of transitology and specific analyses. Hungary, a state that has weathered political and economic transition more successfully than most, is used to illuminate both comparative and regional issues. By bridging the divide between area studies and comparative politics, this book will be a key resource for advanced students and for scholars in East-European/post-communist studies, comparative politics, and international relations.
