About the product
The process of geopolitical, political, economic and social transformation which began at the end of the 1980s in the former centrally planned economies of eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union is of major historical importance. The importance of bringing about monetary and fiscal stabilization after the initial transition shock cannot be denied. Agriculture is seen as an important dimension of economic life as it opens up markets and price liberalization. Using individual country studies, this publication discusses the role agriculture plays in the countries in transition.
