Political Parties in Post-Soviet Space: Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, Moldova, and the Baltics (Google eBook)
Anatoly Kulik, Susanna Pshizova
Greenwood Publishing Group, 2005 - History - 271 pages
A valuable look inside the party politics of the post-Soviet states. Anatoly Kulik and Susanna Pshizova have compiled an engaging and comprehensive cross-national study that explores the stormy political developments in the post-Soviet countries. They have gathered together essays on the formation of the various new democratic institutions of Russia, the Baltic States, Ukraine, Belarus, and Moldova. The contributors are all distinguished scholars indigenous to their areas of focus; consequently, they are able to provide a true insider's perspective of the political climates of their respective lands. Kulik and Pshizova have organised the studies into seven generously detailed, nation-specific chapters that permit readers to see the individual party systems in both their sub-regional contexts as well as in their national ones. The newly independent states that appeared after the collapse of the Soviet Union faced the necessity of creating their own democratic political systems in the first months of independence. background, each country implemented its own methods of government rule: they each pursued different paths with different outcomes. It is logical to view and study the states as a group, but also necessary to see them as individual governments with individual policies and political cultures. This book is part of the Political Parties in Context series.
