9781403964489: Building a Trustworthy State in Post-Socialist Transition (Political Evolution and Institutional Change)

Building a Trustworthy State in Post-Socialist Transition considers the problems and prospects for creating trustworthy and reliable public institutions in the aftermath of the transition from socialism in Central and Eastern Europe. The volume draws on the experience of those who have lived through and studied the transition and contrasts their insights with those of generalist scholars who study government accountability and democracy. The contributions originated in the Collegium Budapest project on Honesty and Trust: Theory and Experience in the Light of the Post-Socialist Transition, organized by János Kornai and Susan Rose-Ackerman. A second volume entitled, Creating Social Trust in Post-Socialist Transition , is being published simultaneously.

From the Inside Flap:

"Building a Trustworthy State in Post-Socialist Transition is an outstanding contribution to the study of the problems democratic consolidation in the former Communist world. The editors, Professors Susan Rose-Ackerman and János Kornai, both distinguished scholars of the economic transition, brought together a brilliant international cast of authors to examine the moral, legal and political problems of building 'trust' or 'social capital' without which in their view formally democratic institutions lack reliability and accountability, and therefore legitimacy in the deeper sense of that term. The double comparative perspective that runs through the volume is especially helpful to students of the 'more successful' Central European cases that are rightly contrasted both with consolidated Western and more authoritarian Eastern democracies."--Andrew Arato, author of Civil Society, Constitution and Legitimacy

"Kornai and Rose-Ackerman have put together a tightly focused, theoretically ambitious, empirically grounded set of essays on the problem of trust in post-socialist societies, the central issue in the second stage of transition. This outstanding team of scholars thinks deeply about the problem of developing institutions that are transparent, capable of responding to democratic pressures, and not held captive by those who managed to seize power in the first round of changes. The interdisciplinary and international set of authors brings an unusually rich diversity of theories and methods to the table, full of nuance and detail. This is a major contribution to our understanding of the issues, and the experiences detailed and the lessons learned in post-socialist Europe may well be brought to bear on an understanding and perhaps even a reform of societies farther West."--Kim Lane Scheppele, John J. O'Brien Professor of Law and Sociology, University of Pennsylvania

Book Description Palgrave MacMillan. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Hardcover. 256 pages. Dimensions: 9.2in. x 6.1in. x 0.9in.Bringing together a top flight set of contributors, this book considers the problems and prospects for creating trustworthy and reliable public institutions since the transition from socialism in Central and Eastern Europe. The focus is on second generation issues of democratic consolidation in states where the basic structures of the market and the state have been established. The contributors raise important issues, such as corruption and participation, largely neglected during the first stage of the transition and that are of growing importance as several countries in the region move toward entry into the European Union. Highlighting problems and prospects of democratization with comparative import to other newly democratizing areas, this volume draws on the experience of those who have lived through and studied the transition and contrasts their insights with those of generalist scholars who study government accountability and democracy. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover. Bookseller Inventory # 9781403964489
