Abstract

This chapter assesses the trajectory and fortunes of the radical left in the period since 1989 as a means of providing a perspective on the significance of the 1989 events for this political area. After contextualising the importance of the 1989 revolutions in central and eastern Europe, the chapter assesses the immediate impact of the revolutions on west European communist parties (WECPs), explores the transformation of the radical left that then occurred, evaluates to what extent this radical left can be described as a genuine 'party family' and looks at the performance of the radical left and its likely prospects.
