The 1989 Revolutions in Retrospect

Domenii publicaţii > Ştiinţe politice + Tipuri publicaţii > Articol în revistã ştiinţificã

Autori: Adrian Pop

Editorial: Europe-Asia Studies , Vol. 65, No. 2, March 2013, p.347-369, 2013.


Reminding us of the failure of academia to predict the East European revolutions, and the challenges
presented by the latter to the theories of revolution, the essay claims that in order to understand why the exit
from communism comprised so many varied modes, one should take a ‘path-dependence’ diachronic and
synchronic comparative perspective. Based on this dual approach and a set of variables, the essay advances a
typology of East European revolutions and argues that the issues regarding the type of political regime, the
development of civil society and its way of interacting with the state are of paramount importance for
comprehending how the ‘negotiated revolutions’ in Central Europe came about. Finally, the significance of
the Central European civil society strategy under late communism for the era of globalisation is addressed.
