Chapter Summary

At least for the ex-communist countries, the last twenty years have been of major historical importance. These countries have undergone a complete social transformation , a radical shift to pluralistic democracy and a market economy. This chapter presents the theoretical background, followed by a description of the research question and study expectations in the form of hypotheses. It also presents the empirical sources in the data section. The chapter describes the strategy of analysis including the statistical models used and operationalization of the dependent and independent variables. It discusses the empirical evidence and statistical tests applied and interprets the results. Finally the chapter provides more connections to theoretical and empirical evidence from other sources. For transition countries, the idea of both worlds meeting could be considered as their finding a different path for development than that of the communist period.

Keywords: ex-communist countries; market economy; social transformation; transition countries
