Following the collapse of socialism in Eastern Europe, immediate concerns for the former socialist states have been largely economic. However, whilst much has been written about government policies, relatively little has addressed change at the enterprise level. This book does this by means of case studies and careful cross-country comparisons.
`The merit of this book is that it covers not only East European countries and China, but also countries such as Mozambique, Vietnam, and North Korea, which are often neglected by scholars and publishers working in the field of the economics of transformation.' - Slavoie & East European Review
