This collection of essays is derived from a conference convened at Princeton University marking the ten-year anniversary of the collapse of the Soviet Union. Some of the best minds in post-Soviet studies focused on the task of identifying how the post-communist experience with transition has confirmed or confounded conventional theories of political and economic development. The result is a rich array of writings examining vital aspects of the transitional decade following the Soviet collapse and the comparative lessons learned.
