Description
In the 1990s, amid political upheaval and civil war, the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia dissolved into five successor states. The subsequent independence of Montenegro and Kosovo brought the total number to seven. Balkan scholar and diplomat to the region Mieczyslaw P. Boduszynski examines four of those states-Croatia, Slovenia, Macedonia, and the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia-and traces their divergent paths toward democracy and Euro-Atlantic integration over the past two decades. Boduszynski argues that regime change in the Yugoslav successor states was powerfully shaped by both internal and external forces: the ecomic conditions on the eve of independence and transition and the incentives offered by the European Union and other Western actors to encourage ecomic and political liberalization. He shows how these factors contributed to differing formulations of democracy in each state. The author engages with the vexing problems of creating and sustaining democracy when circumstances are t entirely supportive of the effort. He employs invative concepts to measure the quality of and prospects for democracy in the Balkan region, arguing that procedural indicators of democratization do t adequately describe the stability of liberalism in post-communist states. This unique perspective on developments in the region provides relevant lessons for regime change in the larger post-communist world. Scholars, practitioners, and policymakers will find the book to be a compelling contribution to the study of comparative politics, democratization, and European integration.

Description: A career officer with the US Foreign Service, Boduszynski argues that for the first decade of their transition, beginning in 1991, Slovenia, Croatia, the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, and Macedonia followed divergent trajectories of regime change because they started from very different places. These differences were rooted in long-term disparities in economic development, he says, which were reproduced over time and through regimes of various characters that shaped the prospects for liberalism. But in the long run, the scattering push from the past was overcome by the uniting pull from the West, and so the errant countries converged during their second decade and sought to become members of the European Union and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).

In the 1990s, amid political upheaval and civil war, the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia dissolved into five successor states. The subsequent independence of Montenegro and Kosovo brought the total number to seven. Balkan scholar and diplomat to the region Mieczyslaw P. Boduszynski examines four of those states -- Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia-Montenegro, and Macedonia -- and traces their divergent paths toward democracy and Euro-Atlantic integration over the past two decades.

Boduszynski argues that regime change in the Yugoslav successor states was powerfully shaped by both internal and external forces: the economic conditions on the eve of independence and transition and the incentives offered by the European Union and other Western actors to encourage economic and political liberalization.

The author engages the vexing problems of creating and sustaining democracy in spite of circumstances not entirely supportive of the effort. He employs innovative concepts to measure the quality of and prospects for democracy in the Balkan region, arguing that procedural indicators of democratization do not adequately describe the stability of liberalism in post-communist states.
