Edited by two of the world's leading analysts of postcommunist politics, this book brings together distinguished specialists on the former communist countries of Russia and the Western Newly Independent States. Chapters on Belarus, Moldova, and Ukraine, plus three chapters on Russia's regional politics, its political parties, and the overall process of democratization, provide an in-depth analysis of the uneven pattern of political change in these four countries. Karen Dawisha and Bruce Parrott contribute theoretical and comparative chapters on postcommunist political development across the region. This book will provide students and scholars with detailed analysis by leading authorities, plus the latest research data on recent political and economic developments in each country.

"The chapter by Dawisha...is of utmost interest to anyone studying the theory of comparative politics...The complicated processes in Moldova are expertly described with the help of an astonishing wealth of hard facts." Choice "This book will be of great interest to those concerned with the issue of processes of democratization in postcommunist states." John B. Dunlop, Slavic Review
