First published in 1998, the contents of this book is the result of a series of studies by several Albanian scholars, in cooperation with contributors of differing nationalities, on various aspects of the Albanian economy during its ‘transition to market’. This study’s multiple aim is to provide an accessible body of information for outsiders interested in Albania ; to provide locally based teaching material for Albanian economics students; and to also clarify policy issues.
