Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book contends that liberalization is troubled in new Europe. It investigates Hungary to depict the disaggregate nature of liberalization due to elitism and the prioritization of economic liberalization. Despite favorable circumstances in Hungary after 1989, the proponents of liberalism lost credibility and failed to convince the public of the advantages of progressive politics and Europeanization. In reaction, conservative populist politics now disparages the achievements of both liberalization and Europeanization. Finally, the global economic crisis demonstrates the demise of economic liberalization and puts political liberalization in peril.

Synopsis:

An examination of the problem of liberalization in Hungary, this book explores two related research questions: why has the course of political liberalization in the Central and Eastern European states failed to construct an organic link between democratic institutions and the public? How has the economic liberalization narrative of the liberalizing elite excluded the public? To answer these questions, the book investigates the conditions under which post-accession liberalization comes to a halt in countries once praised for their pace of reform, and places Hungary in context among states such as Poland, Slovenia, and Slovakia.
