Product Description: This book addresses one of the fundamental problems in Russian society, and in Russia's relations with the rest of the world. Why do Russians tend to react differently from 'us' in given diplomatic or business situations? Why do they find the notion of a contract difficult to grasp? Why do they seem hostile to the principle of the level playing field? How do they see Russia's position within the globalised economy? In order to probe these issues, the author begins with a historical analysis, looking at the pattern of political and economic development since Tsarist times, always asking the questions: What is unique to Russia in all this, and which unique features tend to recur in different periods? In seeking to illuminate the interface between Russia and the world, the author also examines Russia's attitude to itself, and to its own resources -- natural and human -- to land as an agricultural resource, and later oil and gas; and to people -- as cheap labour and as highly trained scientific personnel...read more

"Restructuring the Soviet Economy" addresses the fundamental economic problem facing the Soviet government at the present time. How can an economy which has been centrally planned for 60 years make the testing and painful transition to market-based principles? The Soviet experience in the latter half of the 1980s suggests that it is going to be a much more difficult task than was initially believed in either East or West. David Dyker seeks to uncover the underlying reasons for the paralysis of perestroika. He focuses on the crisis points - some new, some perennial - of the economy: the relationship between the enterprise, the regions and the centre, agriculture, investment, inflation, and the budget deficit. A concise treatment of an area which the non-specialist often finds obscure, it is designed to be analytical, without being too technical for the non-economist. This book should be of interest to lecturers and students of Soviet studies, economics and European studies.

Despite the rapid pace of economic integration in Europe, the European economy is still made up of a collection of national economies ranging from industrial giants such as Germany to the poor economies of Eastern Europe. "The National Economies of Europe" provides country studies of a representative range of European economies. It covers both East and West Europe providing a comprehensive overview of European economies. Each chapter is written to a standard specification for a totally unified approach and it also analyzes the problem in moving from command to market economies. The book is aimed at students taking courses on European economics and can be used as a supplementary text for comparative economic systems and economic history. Lecturers with research and teaching interests in European economics, comparative economic systems, economic reform, macroeconomic policy and economic history should also find it useful.
