>The right in East Central Europe: enter a paper tiger
At last our co-authored research paper on centre-right parties in East Central Europe gets into the public domain as a working paper on the website Sussex European Institute. A while ago there was a fashion for titling serious bits of academic research with punning titles of films, pop songs and fairy tales. I wanted at one point to call my book on Czech right wing politics Blue Velvet before I realized that neither the name of the 1980s David Lynch film nor the much older song would register with many readers. This time we were in more restrained mood – and also stuck for much in the way of wordplay that suggest the theme of elite cohesion.
