East Central Europe and the Former Soviet Union- Post-Socialist States provides a concise overview of the economic, political, social and environmental changes that have occurred in the region since the collapse of the Soviet system in the late 1980s, focusing on the geography of these transformations. The book also engages the theoretical debate surrounding the process of ‘transition’ and its links to broader development processes.
