This volume--the first in a series of books on democratic consolidation in Eastern Europe--examines the constraints and opportunities of institutional engineering in Eastern Europe. The aim is to contrast a set of democracy theories with empirical evidence accumulated in Eastern Europe over the last ten years. Avoiding complex debates about definitions, methods, and the uses and misuses of comparative research, this book instead tries to establish what has really happened in the region and which of the existing theories have proved helpful in explaining these developments.

Jan Zielonka, Professor of Political Science, Social and Political Sciences and the Robert Schuman Centre, European University InstituteReview:
There is little to fault in this welcome dual publication. * Democratization * A grand, lucid and extremely perceptive collection of essays detailing the East European experience. The two volumes provide a unique examination of the particular experience of the 'transition to democracy' ... Democratic Consolidation in Eastern Europe is an extremely valuable contribution to the study of post-1989 Eastern Europe (and, in fact, Europe as a whole). * Acta Politica: International Journal of Political Science * A powerful insight into the process of institution building in the new democracies of Eastern Europe ... Democratic Consolidation in Eastern Europe is going to be a very helpful repository for anyone who is studying the period of transition and who is looking for critical and well-informed perspectives on Eastern Europe's experience of democratization. * Acta Politica: International Journal of Political Science *
