This is the first of a five-volume series offering a definitive analysis of the economic development of eastern Europe from the dismemberment of the great nineteenth-century empires in 1919 to the 1975 Act of Helsinki which confirmed the boundaries of the east-west division. Volume I provides a general survey of the demographic and social structure of eight communist countries - Albania, Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia, the German Democratic Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, and Yugoslavia - as well as a description of their economic structure. There are chapters on agriculture, raw materials and energy, industry, infrastructure, foreign trade, and national income and product.

Industry Reviews

`The story that these volumes relate is fascinating in its detail and very relevant to an understanding of the post-war world ... Michael Kaser and his team have made a mass of material available to an English-speaking audience for the first time.' Times Higher Education Supplement 'What the essays lack in methodological and analytical sophistication they make up for in richness of detail and keenness of observation. These essays will be read with profit not only by economic but also by political historians of the twentieth century.' John Komlos, University of Pittsburgh, Journal of Modern History, Vol 62 No 3 Sept '90 `this set of book is extremely useful. Any student of east-central and southeast Europe cannot pass up these volumes' American Historical Review
