About this book

Introduction

Post-communist transformation differs from any previous experience of societies in transition by its scope, speed, international framework and complicity. It contains elements of democratization, marketization, nation building, and the creation of a new international environment in the framework of globalization. The contributors give an 'internal' perspective of these highly complicated processes in a comparative form and using a multidisciplinary approach.

Keywords
