Russia and Eastern Europe After Communism: The Search for New Political, Economic, and Security Systems
Michael Kraus, Ronald D. Liebowitz
Westview Press, 1996 - Political Science - 349 pages
Examining the key challenges confronting Russia and Eastern Europe, this multidisciplinary volume considers the constitutional, political, economic, security, and national identity issues facing these post-communist societies. Drawing upon both theory and case studies informed by newly available primary sources, leading U.S. and Russian specialists provide a comprehensive balance sheet of the achievements and costs of the ongoing economic and political transformation. They also examine the prospects for a thriving civil society and for the region's integration into European and global economic and security institutions.
