Summary
"Though the fall of the Soviet opened the way for states in central and eastern Europe to join the world of market-oriented Western democracies, the expected transitions have not been as easy, common, or smooth as sometimes perceived. Rachel A. Epstein investigates the impact of liberal ideas and practices on transitioning societies. She finds that success or failure depends largely on the social context in which liberalizing incentives are viewed as symbols of an emerging Western identity." "In making her case, Epstein offers new data on and fresh interpretations of reforming central bank policies, privatizing banks with foreign capital, democratizing civil-military relations, and denationalizing defense policy. In Pursuit of Liberalism bridges the gap between the rationalist and constructivist schools of thought."--BOOK JACKET
