The Transition: Evaluating the Postcommunist Experience
- Publish Date: 2002-12-13
- Binding: Hardcover
This collection brings together scholars from diverse standpoints to examine the transition from Communism a decade later. The result is a book that illuminates the changes, and particularly the problems, that have accompanied attempts to introduce representative democracy and a viable market economy into formerly Communist states. Specialist chapters on the Former Soviet Union, Russia, Poland, Azerbaijan and the former East Germany, institutional accounts of post-Communist states and conceptual chapters should make this volume suitable to university courses, policy makers and NGOs that have an interest in transition countries.
