Abstract

Contributors to the book draw mostly on information available through to 1995. Such are the delays in publishing (and reviewing) that some o f these chapters now look dated, as economic events and policies have evolved. In their introduction, Jones and Miller ably consider how the conclusions contained in the book should be viewed in the light o f the ex- traordinary period o f hyperinflation in Bulgaria in 1996. Since then, Bulgaria has seen the establishment o f a currency board, a return to more stable prices, and changes in govern- ment leadership - although, consistent with the core theme o f the book, Bulgarian eco- nomic recovery and reform has continued to proceed slowly. The most enduring and relevant parts of the book are those chapters that consider how internal institutional structures have influenced economic developments, or the lack - thereof, in Bulgaria. The chapter by Pamouktchiev, Parvulov, and Petranov documents the numerous difficulties o f privatization in Bulgaria. Notwithstanding an ambitious program o f land restitution and the growth o f small entrepreneurs in services, the privatization o f big state enterprises has been mired in delays and conflicts that have drained the country's financial
