Summary/Abstract: This book depicts the complex past and present evolution of political parties. In the first chapter, a social and political origin of political parties is discussed. In the second one, the complex nature of relations between political parties and political systems, while in the third chapter the book portrays transition to democracy. In the fourth chapter a more empiric, case study-based approach is used and different transition experiences are analysed. The final chapter discusses the transformation of political parties in the age of globalization, using a framework of transformationism and the concept of second modernity. In this part, the European Union serves as an empirical example.
