Main Description
This book is the only book which covers the centre-right in post-Communist Eastern Europe. It makes an important contribution to the broader research agenda on the Central and East European centre-right by focusing on a specific question: why strong and cohesive centre-right formations have developed in some post-communist states, but not others. It does this by examining attempts to develop centre-right parties after 1989 in four national case studies: the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia. The authors of the case studies use a common analytical framework to analyze and explain varying levels of cohesion centre-right parties across the region.
