This title was first published in 2003. Covering a diverse range of countries such as Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia and Russia, as well as referring to the characteristics of the region as a whole, this book examines the inflow and outflow of foreign direct investment from both home and host company and country perspectives. By analyzing foreign direct investment in terms of process, content and context, the book provides a holist approach towards direct foreign investment in the transitional context of Central and Eastern Europe, embracing both macro- and micro-economic perspectives of the process.


'…the book offers an interesting discussion of various FDI aspects in transition countries, covering a diverse range of CEE countries…the book provides a comprehensive study of the motives of multinationals for entering CEE, the entry mode and its connection with characteristics of both home and host countries, the degree of satisfaction investors achieved through their operations, and the effects these operations have on particular economies.' South-Eastern Europe Journal of Economics
