The Human Geography of East Central Europe examines the geography of the transition economies that were not formerly part of the Soviet Union: Albania, Bosnia & Hercegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, The Czech Republic, Hungary, Macedonia, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Yugoslavia and East Germany. There is a thematic treatment beginning with the landscape and historical background, which moves on to the social and economic geography (industry, agriculture and infrastructure) and to issues concerning regional development and environmental protection.


'There are certainly few contemporary English-language works intent on dealing with Central East Europe in such a comprehensive manner.' - Environment and Planning C: Government and Policy, 2004

'Turnock's latest book is an important contribution to studies of postcommunist transformation from a senior and well-respected scholar.' - The Geographical Journal, 2005
