This comprehensive one-volume guide to politics in Eastern Europe provides a wealth of information on the region far excelling any other source. An extensive introduction by the author presents the analytical background for understanding the decline and collapse of the East European communist regimes in the late 1980s; the evolution of multi-party systems and political institutions over the past decade; the communist legacy and other challenges to liberal democratic development including nationalist, authoritarian, and neo-fascist movements; and the problems of state weakness, crime, and corruption. The author then outlines the emergent political spectrum of both parties and coalitions that are described in the twenty country chapters that make up the heart of the book.

Each country chapter opens with an overview of the country's political history; major developments during the 1990s; the structure of the political system; salient political issues; and the range and role of parties and other organizational political groupings. Parties are classified across the political spectrum, and discussed individually in terms of programs, leadership, and political activity. Tables at the end of each country chapter present basic political data and electoral results. A concluding essay evaluates democratic development in the region. Appendices and indexes enhance the volume's utility.
