The human geography of East Central Europe by David Turnock( )

17 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 1,266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Human Geography of East Central Europe examines the geography of the transition economies that were not formerly part of the Soviet Union: Albania, Bosnia & Hercegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, The Czech Republic, East Germany, Hungary, Macedonia, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Yugoslavia. There is a thematic treatment beginning with the landscape and historical background, which moves on to the social and economic geography (industry, agriculture and infrastructure) and to issues concerning regional development and environmental protection." "The book is all about the transitions that have followed the collapse of the communist system. In political terms this means the development of civil society, based on pluralism, and the changed territorial basis with the collapse of the federations of Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia. The social geography covers demography and ethnic relations against a background of stress arising from high unemployment and low incomes." "The book highlights the problems of transition which have been most evident through the ethnic tensions of the Balkans."--BOOK JACKET
