Would there be more partisan animosity and legislative gridlock or less? These are the kinds of questions that thinking about U...read more

Product Description: Shadows of the past are affecting the new capitalist democracies throughout the former Communist world. This volume not only examines the question of former Communists again holding public office and managing firms, but also looks to the deeper cultural considerations: do Leninist legacies leave the former Communist countries with political cultures that shy away from the public debate and political participation vital to robust democracy? The authors examine these issues comparatively across Eastern Europe and the ex-Soviet Union, asking whether Leninism was unique, but also asking how other new democracies emerging from an authoritarian past have been affected by legacies of repression and dictatorship...read more

'Excellent treatment of the problems involved in the institutional design of democratization. Using a comparative perspective, authors examine the relationship between the tasks of institutional design and the policy outcomes of economic and political liberalization in Latin America and in Central and Eastern Europe. Focuses on how institutions serve a market economy, the design of electoral laws, and executive-legislative relations. Although differences do exist, authors find that 'Eastern Europe and Latin America are conceptual and theoretical neighbors rather than distant strangers' to the process of democratization'--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 57.http://www.loc.gov/hlas/
