Review quote

Slovenia's Transition is the first comprehensive, accessible account of that country's transition from a minor republic in the former Yugoslavia to an independent nation in the European Union. Richly detailed and clearly written, it provides a compelling account of the economic, political and social challenges that confront the emerging democratic countries of Europe. It is a must read for those interested in Slovenian politics as well as for students of European political integration. -- Cornell W. Clayton, editor of Political Research Quarterly Slovenia's Transition is a first rate anaylsis of Slovenia's economic development, from the earliest times to its acceptance to the EU in 2004. The authors, Bogomil Ferfila and Paul Phillips are acknowledged experts in the field and this book demonstrates the range and depth of their expertise. The book has a remarkably compact but impressive review of Slovenia's development in the Yugoslav Federation, but concentrates mainly on the problems of transition since independence. It has strong sections on labor relations, monetary policy, fiscal policy and the political economy of the transition. It is an excellent piece of work and should be required reading for scholars of transitional economies. -- John Loxley, University of Manitoba One of the few monograph-length studies on the Slovenian economy, Ferfila and Phillips's book contains useful information on individual topics, as well as interesting observations...Readers interested in learning about Slovenia can refer to Slovenia's Transition for useful individual chapters on 1990s economic issues and for a Slovenian perspective on them.
