ELECTIONS AND PARTIES IN NEW EUROPEAN DEMOCRACIES

Title: ELECTIONS AND PARTIES IN NEW EUROPEAN DEMOCRACIES
 
Author: RICHARD ROSE & NEIL MUNRO
 
Description: An essential reference work covering elections in Central and Eastern Europe, Rose and Munro provide an invaluable volume. Packed with detail and hard-to-find facts, the work is authoritative, clear, and timely.<br /> - Pippa Norris, Harvard University <br /> <br /> Richard Rose and Neil Munro have produced an essential reference work for election experts: a definitive text covering election laws, parties, and election results in 11 post-Communist democracies. As a bonus, they offer an innovative model relating the supply of election laws and parties by political elites to the demands of voters. Applying the model in Eastern Europe shows that the institutionalization of free elections leaves democracy incomplete as long as there is a floating system of parties and voters without trust. <br /> - Arend Lijphart, University of California, San Diego <br /> <br /><br /> 102 Tables 309 pages 13 Figures<br /><br /> Just published by CQ Press, Washington DC.
