This volume aims to offer an accessible, comprehensive and up-to-date one-volume comparative overview of the systems of government and politics in the four main countries of central Europe. It should be of use to courses in modern history, politics and government and international relations that wish to integrate study of these future EU members into their courses. It could also be useful to politicians, businessmen and experts who need a handy introduction to the politics of the region. All of the key institutions are analyzed to trace the evolution of these countries from part of the Soviet bloc to independent democratic states. The role of civil society in the period of transition and the countries' future prospects at the heart of Europe are analyzed.
