    schema:reviewBody ""While post-communist states vary in their economic development, political history, cultural traditions and religious and ethnic compositions, the challenges presented by the post-communist transformation are relatively uniform. This is a new kind of transformation that contains simultaneous democratization, marketization and nation building. It involves the creation of a new international environment within the framework of globalization as well as a revolution in mentality at the national level." "The editors and contributors, the majority of whom are from the region, give an 'internal' perspective on these post-communist transformations and present - in a comparative and multidisciplinary form - new challenges to the post-communist states. They also provide readers with a state-by-state analysis of the differences in political and economic patterns and outcomes."--Jacket." ;
