This collection covers the early post-communist transformation in Central and Eastern Europe and Russia. It deals with a large range of still critical issues and presents new data resources. Experts, including prominent Central and East European, British and North American scholars, emphasize country conditions that accounted for difficulties in implementing the sweeping reforms by which markets were introduced in Central and Eastern Europe and Russia. Separate sections cover finance, enterprise restructuring, multi-sectoral modelling, trade and defence conversion.
