Transition to What? Restarting Development After Communism

Published on 1 July 1998

This IDS Bulletin examines the European and Asian countries which are reforming formally Communist centrally-planned economies and one-party states. It goes beyond the frequent preoccupation with monetary policy and measures of economic openness to examine a multi-faceted phenomenon involving all areas of social, political and economic life.

Topics include the development of new economic and legal institutions, the sociology of entrepreneurship and trends in the labour market and the mass media in a range of countries from Albania to Russia, Kazakstan and Vietnam.
