Review

"Describing and assessing the course, successes, and failures of transforming the former Soviet Union and seven other countries into market economies, this study has no equals in comprehensiveness and specificity.... Highly recommended." - Choice

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Lucid and comprehensive in coverage. The readers are guided to understand the many aspects of political and economic transitions of postcommunist countries and other transition economies alike.

It might be interesting to read this book with Acemoglu's "Why nations fail" in order to see how politics interact with economics in producing different economic and political outcomes.
