Tokés and his colleagues get away from standard and static views to carry the study of government and opposition in East Europe into new dimensions. The currents of dissent here described are many and varied and they interact; some come from ancient and deep feelings (e.g., nationalism, resentment of Russia), while others reflect the changing nature of the economy and society; and the differences between countries are often striking.
