A Normal Country will have a substantial effect on the scholarly perception of Russia’s postcommunist economic transformation.—Anders Åslund, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace

Andrei Shleifer’s A Normal Country brings together in one volume his influential and controversial set of arguments about Russia’s postcommunist transformation. As an advisor to the Russian government in the 1990s, Shleifer helped to make history. This book now helps to frame the debate about that history - essential reading for any student of transitional economies.—Michael McFaul, Stanford University
