Democracy and Environmental Movements in Eastern Europe: A Comparative Study of Hungary and Russia is a systematic comparison of environmental activismand more broadly, collective democratic actionin two former state socialist societies. Based on extensive research, Katy Pickvance offers us a study in contrasts: Russia stands as an example of continuing state centralization, while Hungary has democratized more successfully due to encouraged citizen action. This book sheds light on the differences between these relatively antithetical regimes and shows how such differences shape larger trends of civil and social action in democratizing nations. The result is a wide-ranging investigation of the development of democratic institutions, civic action and environmental movements in the East-European context.
