This timely book surveys political change in postcommunist Europe. It concentrates on the western periphery of the former Soviet empire and covers the countries of four regions: East Central Europe (Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Hungary); the Balkans (Bulgaria, Romania, Slovenia, Croatia, the Third Yugoslavia, Macedonia, and Albania); the Baltic Rim (Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia); and Eastern Europe (Belarus and Ukraine).
The book charts the changes in each of these countries. It provides a brief overview of the history and communist legacy of each country, then reviews the new constitutional framework, the principal political parties and their orientation, the direction and scope of economic reform, and the foreign and security policies. Throughout, it evaluates the extent and direction of postcommunist transformation in each country and its prospects for becoming a viable member of the new European order. By its concentration on the actual elements of the emerging political systems and its currency, this is essential reading for students and scholars of Eastern Europe and contemporary international affairs. Patrons of public and school libraries will find it an important resource as well.
Proverbs 29:2: When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn. KJV From the beginning of mankind, there has never been a country like the United States; a beacon light to the world, giving hope, prosperity, and most of all, freedom to all those who landed on the shores of this great country. America was built upon Biblical principles, it was due to Christians civic responsibility in making a government good for all people.
The prophet Hosea said, 4:6: My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: KJV
"And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book." (Revelation 22:19 KJV)
The New Age movement has infiltrated the evangelical church and gradually changed the Bible to conform to it's One World Religion, which is evident in eliminating the God head, Jesus Christ, and the virgin birth in many of the Revised bible versions today. Their words and doctrines prepare the apostate church of these last days to accept the Antichrist, his mark, image, and religion--Lucifer worship. The emerging 'new' Christianity--with its substitution of riches for righteousness, a crown for a cross, and an imitation for a new creation--is shown to be a direct result of the wording in new revised versions, a blueprint for the Antichrist's One World Religion and government. Christians must get involved in government. It is our civic responsibility.
This work examines the impact of macroeconomic conditions on public support for the government in Britain, France, Netherlands, Denmark and Germany.
