'. . . the book is both well-written and useful as part of a larger literature on the subject. Both technically oriented environmental policy analysts and generalists interested in transitional economies will benefit from the material presented, which provides a deeper appreciation of the complexities of the task of moving the transition economies toward more environmentally sustainable economic redevelopment.' - Michael Toman, Slavic Review 'Many institutes attempted empirical research on environmental policy instruments in former centrally planned economies. This book, however, is quite unique in that it was edited by two environmental economists from the Harvard Institute for International Development (HIID) who spent several years in the region as senior advisors working in ministries of environment. . . . We have a book that offers one of the first comparative surveys of abatement policies in transition economies. . . . this is a solid piece of research recommended for reading by anyone who wants to study environmental pollution in Europe seriously.' - Tomasz Zylicz, Ecological Economics Controlling Pollution in Transition Economies examines and evaluates the recent experience of implementing pollution charges and the use of environmental permits in Central and Eastern Europe and Russia.
