9780880335133: Leaders and Laggards

This volume builds on the work of Robert Putnam to argue that what makes institutions democratic goes beyond state arrangements to the realm of society. The new institutions in Eastern Europe performed differently in various countries, although their formal structure varied little among countries. Stan explores the extent to which social capital affected the performance of one such institution, the Romanian county council. The result of extensive fieldwork in Romania, the book remains one of the rare studies of local government in Eastern Europe.
