The Neoliberal Revolution in Eastern Europe (2009)


Aligica, Paul Dragos, and Evans, Anthony J., 2009, The Neoliberal Revolution in Eastern Europe: Economic Ideas in the Transition from Communism, Cheltenham, UK: Edward Elgar

This unique book develops two different but related research agendas: the study of the spread of ‘neoliberalism’ – as seen from the perspective of Eastern European post-communist evolutions; and the study of Eastern European transition – as seen from an ideas-centred perspective. It challenges a series of misunderstandings and myths about the spread of neoliberal economic ideas in Eastern Europe and offers a clearer understanding of progress since market reforms began.
