The recent developments in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union are providing Western businesses with new opportunities and challenges as a potentially huge new market emerges. While most Western firms are busy debating the impact of the EC and how to develop their strategies to handle a single European market of 223 million people, they are often unaware of the emergence of the enormous opportunities available in Eastern and Central Europe and the former Soviet Union with a market of 400-500 million consumers. This market is untapped in almost all sectors. Not only consumers, but also the state owned organizations, cooperatives and the emerging private enterprises want Western goods and technologies. The Economics of Change in East and Central Europe increases our understanding of the strategic aspects of international business in Eastern Europe by gathering together specially commissioned readings by specialists in both the subjects and countries dealt with. This enables the material to be presented from the perspective of both the host countries and the major sources. It gives analytical insights into the workings of international business within this market by combining empirical and conceptual contributions. The Economics of Change in East and Central Europe gathers together for the first time an international analysis of this entire area in one book. It will be of interest to students and researchers of international business and marketing as well as to all business practitioners who have an interest in Eastern and Central Europe.

A comprehensive introduction to the nations of Central and Eastern Europe and their shared and divergent experiences of post-communist transition to free-market democracies. The first part of the book describes the communist system introduced throughout the region after World War II and the causes of the system's ultimate collapse. Detailed chapters on each country of the region describe --the particular features of the country's communist regime and its collapse; --the country's response to four post-communist challenges: (1) creating democratic political institutions; (2) economic liberalization; (3) achieving social accord; (4) reorienting relations with the world, and in particular with neighboring states; --the social stresses and dislocations associated with system change; ethnic conflict; job insecurity; family and gender relations; environmental degradation. A concluding section sums up the commonalities and patterns characterizing post-communist development and the scope and significance of increased diversity in the region.

This book discusses the issues of economic, political and social transformation in post-1989 Bulgaria. Its main goal is to assess realities in this South European country in the context of changes in Eastern Europe. The economic and political developments in Bulgaria are discussed in comparative analysis with developments in post-communist Europe. The main questions addressed in the study are: What is the starting point (economy, state, civil society) in 1989?; What are the main trends in the changes of the state, parties, civil society and the economy (economic development strategies, government policies, privatization, foreign investments, external balance, costs of transition)?; What is the state and what are the prospects for the economic and political relations with Europe (and particularly with the European Union) and the rest of the world?; What are the main challenges in finding the new identity of Bulgaria and her place in the region and in Europe? The volume contains contributions from scholars both from Bulgaria and from Western countries (USA, Canada, Sweden).

This book addresses class formation and changes in personhood in contemporary Eastern Europe in the context of the spread of a market economy. The authors investigate processes of social closure, marginalization and elite formation, paying particular attention to their cultural expressions and to the legitimizing discourses of nationalist and neoliberal agendas. While individual and collective identities are inextricably linked with the consolidation of global capitalism, external blueprints are everywhere mediated through historically grounded experiences and local social relations. Comprising studies from Bulgaria, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, and Russia, the volume explores practices, stories, and performances in everyday life worlds. The ethnographies show both individual and collective identities to be emergent projects, constrained by economic processes and state policies but ultimately created by people themselves as they pursue their interests and search for meaning.

This book seeks to elucidate the nature of the problem through a reconsideration of the general theoretical issues, and through a comparative analysis of the practice of economic reform in two countries - Czechoslovakia and Hungary.

This book examines environmental policy change in twenty-eight Central and Eastern European and Latin American countries against a background of significant political and economic transformation over the past two decades. Through cross-regional comparison and a multi-methods approach, Jale Tosun investigates changes in the regulation of air, soil, and water pollution, genetically modified corn, and the sustainable management of forests. Tosun also looks at the relationship between system transformation and the creation of environmental procuracies in both parts of the world. Environmental Policy Change in Emerging Market Democracies demonstrates that, although political and economic transformations have positively affected environmental policy in both regions, the extent of policy change varies considerably across Central and Eastern Europe and Latin America. At the same time, as Tosun argues, economic integration has acted as a major driver of a stronger governmental enforcement commitment as expressed by the creation of environmental procuracies.
