Summary "In this work, expert contributors provide an overview and analysis of public administration in select post-communist countries, including Russia, Georgia, Czech Republic, Romania, and Mongolia. Because these countries were largely closed off to the world, there has yet to be a comprehensive study on their administrative systems. The book includes coverage of public management and administration, political and economic reforms, civil society, human resource management, financial and budgetary management, accountability and corruption, as well as prospects for future development"-- Provided by publisher
"This book provides a comprehensive overview and analysis of public administration in select post-communist countries and the paths they embarked on after the lifting of the Iron Curtain to transform the authoritarian system of governance into modern, market-based, and in some cases, democratic, government. Specifically, the book focuses on the following newly independent and former socialist states: Bulgaria, Estonia, Georgia, Hungary, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Lithuania, Moldova, Mongolia, Poland, Romania, Russia, and Ukraine"-- Provided by publisher
