This exhaustive survey examines the dramatic changes in the economies of Eastern Europe, set in the political context of the region. The Eastern European Economy, 1800-2000 reviews two centuries of modernization in the areas on the western border of the former Soviet Union. Wide in scope and including detailed and informative chronologies, David Turnock's study traces the economic history of the region within the wider political and ideological context. This comprehensive review brings together the entire scope of the modernization process, from the first phase of modern national development in the Balkans and the impact of imperial systems on the area as a whole, to the feeling of 'unfinished business' at the end of the Second World War, and continuing up to the present-day state of transition, evaluating the contrasts in the region between the northern and southern states, domestic division between dynamic and backward areas, and the increasing emphasis on the opening up of frontierregions. Balanced and informative, The Eastern European Economy, 1800-2000 is essential reading for all those with an interest in Eastern Europe or economic history.
