Why is Eastern Europe still different from Western Europe, more than a quarter-century after the collapse of Communism?

This book explores the comparative backwardness of Eastern Europe, showing how this has driven strategies of modernisation. It also looks at the ways in which the region has served as a giant test-tube for political experimentation and made it a fertile breeding-ground for nationalism and political extremism.
