Negotiating Diplomacy in the New Europe : Foreign Policy in Post-communist Bulgaria Hardback
Part of the Library of European Studies series
Bulgaria has faced previously unimaginable pressures over the last two decades, as it struggles to adapt to a post-communist landscape and to reform both state and society in the wake of the fall of the Soviet Union, while facing the challenge of increased efforts by NATO and the EU to expand into this region.
In Negotiating Diplomacy in the New Europe, Stefanos Katsikas sheds new light on the mechanisms and factors which have influenced the making and shaping of Bulgarian foreign policy, examining the extent to which both domestic factors and the international environment have affected its trajectory.
Rich in primary sources, including personal interviews with key protagonists, Katsikas offers invaluable analysis for researchers of Europe's post-communist international relations, as well as those interested in the processes of democratization and those of foreign policy formation.
