State and Society in Post-Socialist Economies provides detailed examinations of a range of state-society relations in post-socialism. It examines ways that the state regulates or sets the parameters for regulating capitalist practices and the ways in which the state interacts with social groups focused on changing state policy. The cases cover the full range of post-socialist countries, from the Central European new members of the EU, to those in Eastern Europe, as well as a range of countries of the former Soviet Union, including a "progressive" country (Lithuania) and a "reform resister" (Belarus).
JOHN PICKLES is Earl N. Distinguished Chair of International Studies in the Department of Geography at the University of North Carolina. ROBERT M. JENKINS is Director of the Center for Slavic, Eurasian and East European Studies at the University of North Carolina.
