About this book

This book is about economic transformation in agriculture and the adjustments needed in public and private strategies to facilitate it. The book uses theory from the social and physical sciences and practical experience gained throughout the world to recommend strategies that are generally applicable to new market economies in transition.
Bulgaria is used as a case example because it provides an empirical reference of interest because of its diversity, its massive restructuring, and its precollectivization history as an efficient sector. The book also provides a means for coordinating output from a variety of projects currently active in Eastern Europe.
