Economic Institutions and Democratic Reform

A Comparative Analysis of Post-Communist Countries

Economies and Societies in Transition series

The late Ole Nørgaard, formerly Professor, Aarhus University, Denmark

Economic Institutions and Democratic Reform rigorously and systematically explores the political effects and consequences of economic reform in more than 20 post-communist countries.

‘The excellent series Economies and Societies in Transition continues with a major contribution to the analysis of dramatic transformations taking place in the latest decade, in post-communist countries, that of Ole Nørgaard. . . From a theoretical perspective, Ole Nørgaard’s book is a major contribution to development of transitology in general, of post-communist one, in particular. From a pragmatic perspective, it is an essential and challenging lecture for political scientists and politicians, economists, sociologists, civic actors, public servants and officials from international institutions. If all those involved in the battle for democracy will read this book, the democracy will be less threatened. Through his study, Ole Nørgaard is a great defender of democracy.’
– Doina Catana, Journal for East European Management Studies
