Editorial Reviews


"I found the book interesting and exciting."
Slavic Review, John Marangos, Colorado State University

"It is clearly written, and much of it could be easily understood without any formal training of economics. This is quite remarkable, considering the nature of some of the topics covered in the text. The graphics (figures) are excellent and both the graphics (figures) and table are quite effective in illustrating points made in the text. The Introduction does an excellent job of motivating and summarizing the subsequent chapters. I would certainly recommend the book to anyone who would like to learn about the transition process in Central and Eastern Europe."
The Russian Review, Susan J. Linz, Michigan State University

Book Description

Analysing the key problems facing the transition countries in Central and Eastern Europe, this book describes the legacy of the central planners and the need for radical reforms. It documents the outstanding successes and failures, and shows how some countries have graduated from 'transition' to 'integration' through membership of the European Union. The book concludes by indicating how the EU could help the poor performers through inclusion in a continent-wide integrated economic area. Written in accessible style the book will appeal to students in economics, comparative politics and area studies.

Format: Paperback
It fails to expand on Russia and, from my point of view, the perspective seems to be very French-UK-centric. European part of Russia is as big as 40% of the continent. It has to be there.
