Governing New Democracies is a fully comparative study of decision-making processes in the cabinets of ten post-communist countries of East-Central and South-Eastern Europe. It is based on interviews collected from over 300 ministers to such questions as how far do cabinet members participate in cabinet meetings, how do they assess their prime ministers, how do they relate to their departments and to the civil servants under them. Thus, this book provides the first comprehensive panorama of life in cabinet governments from those who are the main actors in these institutions.
