Contents pt. 1. Patterns of post-communist transformation -- pt. 2. Capitalism and democracy in post-communist Lithuania : deepening comparative contexts
Summary A unique application of social science software to generate typology and ranklist of transition models of twenty-nine countries in Europe and Asia, ranging from Estonia to Vietnam, Norkus provides a highly innovative internationally comparative causal analysis of the variation in political and economic outcomes after the first decade of post-communist transformations, using multi-value Qualitative Comparative Analysis and Tosmana programme. The analysis includes a critical revision of received dichotomies (e.g. on gradualism versus "shock therapy"), and contributes to current debates on the varieties of post-communist capitalism
Bibliography Includes bibliographical references (pages 339-360) and indexes
