Abstract

Examing four recently published works , this review essay reflects on ongoing debates the changing basis of party competition in Western and Eastern Europe. It considers the extent to which reserarch on congruence between voters and parties and the role of political organisation leaves established parties potentially vulnerable to collapse. This appears to be an issue more sharply posed in Eastern Europe where party organisation may not contribute to party survival as effectively as initialy appear to be the case. However, models of party system collapse derived from the Latin Americal experience suggest that persistent electoral instability and the prevalence and success of new anti-establishment parties in Eastern Europe may prevent the type of specular implosions witnessed in Venuzuala and Italy.
