Theorising Transition: The Political Economy of Post-Communist Transformations
J. Pickles, John Pickles, Adrian SmithISBN: 041516267X;
This collection challenges many of the comfortable assumptions unleashed by the euphoria of democratization and market capitalism in the years post-Glasnost. The transformations underway in post-Communist societies after 1989 have generated complex and highly differentiated regional systems of adjustment. The contributions by geographers, economists, sociologists, feminists, and planners examine the theoretical perspectives on transition, industrial and regional restructuring, agrarian change, de-collectivization and rural struggles in a variety of eastern and central European contexts. Theorising Transition provides both a rich empirical map of the dimensions of post-Communism and raises important theoretical issues about how we interpret these changes.
