About this book

Among the most costly and complicated chapters in the former Eastern bloc countries' transitions to democracy is the clean up and restoration of the environment. Even as Communist-era environmental problems fade in significance - such as pollution from heavy industry - new threats have emerged.

"Restoring Cursed Earth" considers how rule making, sanctions, incentives, and programs shape environmental protection efforts, and whether and to what extent these emerging policy structures are promoting environmental well-being for citizens in Russia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, and Estonia.

Media reviews
Exploring thorny questions about how to reverse practices and results from the environmental devastation left by communist rule in Eastern Europe and Russia, Matt Auer and his colleagues offer hope, insight and despair. Their analysis of efforts by various reforming institutions government bodies, NGOs and advocacy networks offers sophisticated tales of the interplay of politics, economics and environment. The myriad difficulties of post-Soviet countries seeking environmental improvements turn out to vary greatly. The obvious is often false, while the inertial and subtle hold sway.--Raymond F. Hopkins
