About this product
- DescriptionSince 1898, the former communist countries of Eastern Europe have gained international prominence. The continuing socio-ecomic transition and the instability evident in areas like the Caucasus and Former Yugoslavia have drawn the western world into uneasy interactions with the region. At the same time, closer commercial and cultural contacts are providing opportunities for rewarding relationships which have w resulted in many of these countries joining the EU. This book provides detailed coverage of the transition from communism to a market ecomy. Covering the whole range of East Central European and former Soviet Union countries, it charts the diversity within the region, offering in-depth coverage of specific areas as well as a broad view of development across the region. The book is organised into three comprehensive sections: the historical, socio-ecomic and environmental. The socio-ecomic section considers the critical issues of restructuring to effect the transition from central planning to a market ecomy, while the historical material provides an essential context for the constraints and opportunities affecting the region. The environmental section places emphasis on results of environmental neglect inherited from communism as well as looking to the future implications of EU directives on the problems of biodiversity and pollution in the region.
