This book explains the changes that will be in place as a result of the 1992 democratic elections throughout Eastern Europe. For 40 years Eastern Europe has been erroneously considered a political monolith but beneath apparently identical structures of power, old political tensions continued to ferment. Glenny shows how these traditions have broken out into newly legitimized political parties, offering the reader a comprehensive map of this turbulent area's traditions and prospects. He provides some understanding of the crucial inter-war years that still shape so much of the region's politics. There are biographical portraits of the major political personalities.
