Summary
Two decades have now passed since the transition to democracy began in Eastern Europe, transforming dictatorships into democracies. Today the West and East-Central European countries share a common political space - the European Union. This offers a fascinating perspective for analysis of the similarities and differences, and a search for their roots. In this book, Vit Hlousek and Lubomir Kopecek critically apply the party-families approach to political parties in the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia, and Slovenia. With chapters devoted to social democrats, greens, the far right and left amongst many others, the book charts the party's origins, ideologies, and international ties alongside their Western European counterparts. By examining the political relevance of different party families, Hlousek and Kopecek are able to assess the validity of this typology in the analysis of the transformation of political parties in this region. -- Back cover
