The collapse of communism in Eastern Europe in 1989 is seen as the classic case of democratic diffusion. Since then, there has been a proliferation of studies which have examined the international-level or external causes of democracy (Pridham, Herring, and Sanford 1997; Zielonka and Pravda 2001;Schraeder 2003). These have generally fit into two categories: democracy promotion and diffusion.

This is the second volume in a two-volume series of books on democratic consolidation in Eastern Europe. The aim is to contrast a set of democracy theories with empirical evidence accumulated in Eastern Europe over the last ten years. The first volume focused on the issue of institutional engineering. Instead it seeks to establish what has really happened in the region, and which of the existing theories are helpful in explaining these developments. The volume is divided into two parts.
