Party Structure and Organization in East-Central Europe focuses on the origin and development of new political parties within different countries in East-Central Europe. The book has a clear focus on party structure and organization. It is one of the first books to present empirical studies of the development of political parties in Eastern Europe. Whilst making a distinctive contribution, it also feeds into the broader debate about party development and links with other issues of political theory.

The book fills a major gap in our understanding of developments within political parties and their structural evolution. It raises questions about the status and role of a modern political party – not least in East-Central Europe – and the links that can be drawn between developments within the parties and their changing position within the political system as a whole.

All those with an interest in comparative party development and the processes of post-communist change in Eastern Europe will welcome this well focused empirical study.
