504    Includes bibliographical references (p. 262-296) and 
520    Transitions in Land and Housing: Bulgaria, The Czech 
       Republic and Poland describes the shift in control of land
       and housing from the public to the private sectors in 
       these countries in the context of their transitions from 
       communism to market democracy. Under communism, private 
       markets, private ownership of productive assets, and 
       landlord status were anathema. With the post-1989 
       transition to market economies and democratic societies, 
       major structural and legal changes have taken place in 
       Central and Eastern Europe. Choices about purchase, use, 
       and sale of land and housing are once again made largely 
       by private owners, not the state. Real estate markets have
       been reestablished. Most people, as owners of property 
       (farms, apartments, houses, shops, shares in enterprises),
       now have a stake in the system - but this transition is 
       not without costs. 
520 8  Housing construction has plummeted, some farm lands lie 
       fallow, housing credit and farm credit rarely are 
       available, and the poor and elderly fear loss of the 
       social safety net. Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, and 
       Poland have responded to the challenges of transition in 
       distinct ways, each state influenced by its pre-communist 
       past and by the extent of its power under communism. 
       Strong, Reiner, and Szyrmer provide us with the first 
       comprehensive study of the role of real property in the 
       transition process. Transitions in Land and Housing will 
       be of great interest to students of planning, public 
       policy, political science, international affairs, and 
       Eastern European history. Land policy research centers, 
       here and abroad, will find it especially useful.
