What People are Saying About This

Charles Wyplosz

This landmark volume offers a lucid account of the first decade of economic transition by some key actors and first-hand observers. We follow their hopes, achievements, and disappointments, and come to understand better the immense challenge of transition.

Paul Wachtel

There are many varieties of transition experience, and this volume covers them all. Essays pinpoint the unique aspects of each country's experience, the commonalties between the countries, and the diverse efforts to cope with changes. As a result, the book will be of value for both those looking for country-specific evaluations and for those seeking to understand the transition phenomenon — what has happened in the first decade and where it might be going.
