Dear colleagues,


As we are preparing our course syllabi for the summer and fall sessions, I’d like to direct your attention to a new book that Routledge has added to its recommendations for International Economics / Business and that is relevant for Economic Development, Economic History, Comparative Economics, Political Economy, and/or Transition Economies (publisher’s recommendation).


Transition Economies: Transformation, Development, and Society in Eastern Europe and the Former Soviet Union is an analytical and critical survey of a complex question of economic history of the post-socialist economies.


Advance version of the book received early praise from  Otaviano Canuto, Gerard Roland, Branko Milanovic, Daniel J. McCarthy, and others.


As a quick summary, please see this brief overview here or please follow this link to a full video presentation at a dedicated World Bank event, and interview with the New Books Network (other presentations here).


The book is available for course adoptions (request on Routledge’s web) and a journal review copy may be ordered by visiting publisher’s website:


I hope this text may be helpful in your work and course designs and will look forward to hearing from you!
