This major new text brings together specially-commissioned chapters by leading authorities on European politics - East and West - to provide a systematic assessment of developments in political institutions and processes, politics and society, and policy set in the context of globalization, EU enlargement and Europe's changing role on the world stage. Carefully planned and edited by an international team of editors, it will, like its predecessor volumes on Developments in West European Politics, be essential reading for students and scholars.
