About the product

Looking back on a decade of transition in Central and Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union, this publication presents an analysis of the transformations that have taken place and the policies that drove the process. This collection of up-to-date material examines a variety of topics that are essential in understanding both the current state of the transitional economies and their long-term development perspectives along with a special focus on the human costs of the transition. The papers presented in Beyond Transition fall under the main headings: The 1998 Russian Crisis: The Washington Consensus Revisited; The Political Economy of Transition: The Future of the Nation State; Pipelines or Pipe Dreams? The Political Economy of Energy; Environmental Degradation and the Transition to a Market Economy; Comparative Studies of Transition and Development; and Human Security in Transition: Conflicts and Social Exclusion.
