Overview

Editors David Macey, William Pyle, and Stephen Wegren, with a host of world-leading agrarian analyst and practitioners, unravel the shortcomings surrounding post-communist agrarian reform and answers how and why particular policies were adopted in Eurasia. Building Market Institutions in Post-Communist Agriculture draws on country-level case studies to analyze a range of initiatives that institutions have applied to agricultural economies. In this edited collection, contributors use a comparative analytical framework to project a universal process of agrarian transformation that continues to change the social, economic, and political characteristics of this part of the world.

Editorial Reviews

James R. Millar
Agrarian economic and political policies represent the neglected stepchild of transition economics. Although it is not comprehensive, the contributors to this volume have illuminated the fundamental reasons for the disappointing outcomes of agrarian land reform, credit and finance policies and technical assistance in the post-Communist economies. Country specialists will find the analyses informed and compelling. Generalists will want it as a ready reference. The editors and other authors merit a resounding 'Bravo' for the performance.
Csaba Csaki
This book provides a fascinating insight into land reform and the evolving financial and credit markets, as well as agricultural extension systems in selected post-communist countries. Combining theoretical and historical frameworks with recent developments, it is a significant addition to the knowledge base on transition economies.
