Guida ai paesi dell’Europa centrale orientale e balcanica

A single volume written entirely by Italians on Central and Eastern Europe and the Balkans, this yearbook is an essential source of consultation, clear and concise, written by leading experts in the field. It includes 24 country sections, from Russia to Turkey, as well as Greece, Cyprus and the European republics of the former Soviet Union, which describe the major political and economic features of each country as well its international relations, and in addition provides a chronology of the most important events. The essays preceding the country sections analyze the causes, evolution and consequences of the international financial-economic crisis which hit the region extremely hard, with significant social and political as well as economic repercussions. The worrying developments assumed by the context in terms of the prospects and stability of global and national financial systems make this yearbook even more important and useful.The Guide is thus a work providing information and critical analysis which, year after year since 1998, updates readers in the form of an essential and basic tool for all those who desire or need, for purposes of work or simple interest, to know the major developments in this part of Europe.
