Summary As many countries around the world grapple with political and market reform, lively debate is growing around questions concerning the conditions under which decentralization policies are called for, which policies and strategies work, and how transferable they are. This timely study looks closely at the possibilities for and limitations of decentralization in industrialized, developing, and former Eastern bloc countries. Of particular interest is Part One of the book, which concentrates on an in-depth analysis of decentralization developments in the new democracies of Central and Eastern Europe. Under the themes of (a) political and administrative development, (b) governance and services, (c) services and revenues, and (d) urban and regional dimensions, the book traces the decentralization experiences of the developing countries, the countries of the former USSR and Eastern Europe, as well as OECD countries. The first such comprehensive study of these issues, this volume also boasts several contributions by ministers and senior officials in charge of local reforms in their respective countries. This timely and important look at current developments in decentralization will be of great interest to students of decentralization, regional development, and the transition from centralized to market economies, and to those responsible for creating and implementing the relevant policy.
