Eight former communist countries of Central and Eastern Europe joined the European Union in 2004 and two more are scheduled to do so in 2007. This book examines the influence of the EU on party politics in all ten countries from a variety of perspectives and using a range of empirical sources. The book thus makes an original and distinctive contribution both to contemporary EU studies and to the literature on CE party systems and party development.
PAUL G. LEWIS is Professor of European Politics at the Open University. ZDENKA MANSFELDOVÁ is a Senior Researcher and Head of Department of the Sociology of Politics at the Institute of Sociology, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic.
