Regional Economic Change in Russia

Economies and Societies in Transition series

Edited by Philip Hanson, Professor of the Political Economy of Russia and Eastern Europe, University of Birmingham and Michael Bradshaw, University of Warwick, UK

Based on research carried out by an international and interdisciplinary group of experts, this book analyses case studies from eight regions as well as testing hypotheses on data for the 77 main administrative regions. It will be of immense value to academics, those working for government and non-government agencies, and business people.

‘Members of the geographic community and the broader community of scholars and policymakers interested in economic transition will find this volume useful. . . . worthwhile for both regional specialists and those more generally interested in economic transition.’
– Beth Mitchneck, The Professional Geographer

‘Overall, the book is very well written. Its analyses are based upon a broad range of research techniques, but the findings are stated simply; the researchers delve into the vastness of multi-dimensional problems, yet the conclusions are succinct; the language is lucid and the style is polished. It is actually quite amazing how neatly this enormous wealth of information fits in a ten-chapter volume. I enjoyed reading it, and I know many others will too. The book is remarkable in many aspects and has a lot to offer to the inquisitive reader.’
– Nani Boyce, Papers in Regional Science
