Politics in Eastern Europe 1945 - 1992

George Schöpflin

overzicht

The communist experience in Central and Eastern Europe has been one of the most extraordinary political experiments of the twentieth century. Its long-term effects, moreover, will continue to be felt within its countries for many years to come, as they struggle to return to democracy. In this book, George Schopflin provides an exceptional analysis of what communism sought to do, how it was first able to sustain itself in power against considerable popular opposition, and why it collapsed, after four decades, in exhaustion.
