The Experiment with Democracy in Central Europe
The Experiment with Democracy in Central Europe
By Arnold J. Zurcher
Oxford University Press, 1933, 328 pp

This is a timely survey of the post-war political scene in Germany, the Succession States and the new states that emerged from the former Russian Empire. The writer does not attempt an analysis nation by nation, but discusses in various chapters such matters as the nature of the new constitutions, the problem of federalism, the electorate and representation, the position of the executive, and minority rights.
