This book examines the political economy of attempts to restructure the Donbass, one of the Soviet Union's most important 'old economy' 'rustbelt' industrial regions. It shows how local interest groups have successfully frustrated the central government's and the World Bank's proposed market-oriented restructuring, and how a manufacturing-based regional economy is surviving, partially, with restructuring postponed.

About the Author:

Adam Swain is Lecturer in Human Geography at the University of Nottingham, UK. He has been researching regional development, industrial restructuring and labour relations in Hungary, East Germany and Ukraine since the early 1990s.

Review:

'This book brings together contributions from researchers based in the UK and Ukraine on the economic development of the Donbas region. Its importance is clear for the study of post-communist transition' - Martin Myant, University of the West of Scotland (2008)

'For those who have a theory, this book will provide a great deal of detailed analysis of a key region in Ukraine' - Slavic Review, Fall 2008, Vol.67, No.3

'This excellent collection is a coherent and well-informed introduction to the economic and social transformations in a major Soviet ‘rustbelt’region, as well as to the economic conundrums of post-Communist Ukraine.' - Serhy Yekelchyk, Slavonic and East European Review (vol. 89, no. 2, April 2011)
