Sample text

While the earlier “Second World” designation was wrong and misleading, I have chosen to continue using that term here, but to redefine it. What we mean in this book by “Second World” is not “developed” communist states but states that are in transition from communism to democracy and development, and have not yet completed that transition. They are no longer “Third World” but they have not yet made it to “First World” status either. Rather, they are stuck in between. Moreover, they show certain distinctive features of this transitional status: weak and unconsolidated democracies, fragile economies, underdeveloped infrastructure (roads, highways, electricity, bridges, transportation, port facilities), and bureaucracies and governments (including, importantly, the armed forces) that do not work very well.

European Politics in the Age of Globalization (Fort Worth: Harcourt Publishers, 2001). Zelikow, Philip and Condoleeza Rice. Germany Unified and Europe Transformed (Cambridge, UK: Cambridge University Press, 1995). indd 32 9/21/2004 7:42:41 AM CHAPTER 3 Eastern Europe E astern Europe is one of the subregions of Europe, rather like Southern Europe (Greece, Italy, Portugal, Spain) or Northern or Scandinavian Europe (Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden). Most of Eastern Europe has now joined the two great European “clubs,” the European Union (EU) and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO); but because the Eastern countries have a distinct history and were for so long under the control of the Soviet Union, they deserve separate treatment in this chapter.

Within Europe they are often treated as irrelevant inside NATO and the Trans-Atlantic Alliance; their economies are considered weaker than others in the Euro zone; and they are seldom counted on for military or strategic support in Eastern Europe or the Middle East. Of course, these condescending attitudes grate on the Southern Europeans who often resent their Northern European partners. Across the Mediterranean they face North Africa (Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Egypt) as well as, not much farther away, sub-Saharan Africa.
