Titel: Parties and Elections in New European Democracies

The abrupt transformation of one-party Communist regimes into political systems holding competitive elections challenges theories of democracy by evolution. Part One develops an inter-active model of how the supply of parties by political elites shapes the responses of inexperienced electors, and what this means for the institutionalisation of party systems and party identification. The model is then applied to elections since 1990 in ten Central and East European democracies that are now members of the European Union. Part Two provides a definitive and up to date text of election results and the formation and disappearance of parties in these ten countries. In addition, there is a lengthy chapter on elections in Russia.

Richard L. Rose (b. 1945) has retired from several careers, including teaching, medical laboratory work, environmental education and research, math and science supervision, and teaching science and science teaching methods in public schools and universities. After growing up "on the road" with a military family, described in the poetic memoir Marking Time, he settled in Northern Virginia with his wife Susan Bruch Rose to raise two sons and follow a vocation of teaching and avocations of writing and musical composition.
Since retiring, he has produced several chamber operas: Annunciations, The Books of Daniel, Amber, and The People's Voice; two children's books: Shura and The Queen and the Crocodile, and several books of poetry. Following his wife's death and beginning a second marriage to Kathleen Warner, he completed La Rinuncia, produced with a Missa brevis in Richmond in 2015, as well as a novel, FRAMESHIFTS (two volumes, 2011), The School Year in 2015, and the opera Monte and Pinky (2018), to which Coming Around is the companion book. All of the operas were performed as benefit concerts for such organizations as Amnesty International, Habitat for Humanity, as well as a number of arts foundations and local charities. Another musical work, The Fisher of the James, focuses on environmental concerns, while an additional set of stories, Hidden Moves and Hidden Faces, was inspired by the city of Richmond itself. These and other works are publicly available on his website: marginal-notesinwordsandmusic.org; and blogsite: http://www.frameshifts.com.
Recurrent themes in Rose's work are the transience of our lives and habitat, and an insistence that we find effective ways to attend to this fact, not by heroic measures but by paying attention to each other and our world and focusing on compassion. By producing benefit concerts, reducing royalties, and recommending nonprofit organizations worthy of their attention, he invites readers to make their own creative responses. His hope is that readers of his work will be inspired to imagine and accomplish something positive for their communities.
An invaluable and authoritative volume about elections in Central and Eastern Europe. It is timely, packed with hard-to-find facts and details, and clearly written. Pippa Norris, Harvard University
