The Iron Curtain lifted in 1989, and more than twenty nations emerged from the isolation that had largely hidden them from the rest of the world for more than four decades. In each of these former Soviet States, remnants of tradition and economic organization has prevented them from stepping out, beyond the curtain and onto the world stage. Regardless, some have been extremely successful. In Agriculture in Transition: Land Policies and Evolving Farm Structures in Post Soviet Countries authors Zvi Lerman, Csaba Csaki, and Gershon Feder study the land policies and farming infastructures of these newly emerging nations as components of institutional change in the rural sector - change from a centralized rural economy to a market-oriented economy. Their analysis of the policy, tradition, history, and social structure of these developing states pushes the discussion of economic transition beyond questions policy, planning, and implementation.

Agriculture in Transition is the best factual and analytical work available on land policy and related issues in the Post-Soviet economies. It will be invaluable to anyone seeking to understand what has been happening in the agriculture of these countries, and what needs to happen for their farm sectors to recover.--Bruce Gardner, professor, Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics, University of Maryland, College Park
