'Lucian Cernat's original analysis combines political economy insights with rigorous economic modelling to explain the influence of external factors (the EU, World Bank, IMF) and domestic interests on the emerging varieties of capitalism and their impact on economic performance in CEECs.' - Dr. Peter Holmes, Jean Monnet Reader in Economics, University of Sussex, UK
'Cernat provides a precise understanding of how external influences, and in particular the Europeanization process, combine with domestic political interests to shape economic institutions and development in CEECs. The book shows how badly wrong the transition to capitalism can go when incoherent reforms are pursued. Such 'worst-case' scenarios have important lessons for policy makers involved in EU enlargement and in promoting such reforms in other emerging market economies.' - Prof. Martin Rhodes, European University Institute, Italy
'...[Cernat's] declared aim is to carry out the first detailed analysis of the 'Europeanization' of the former communist countries that joined the European Union in the first wave of eastern enlargement in 2004 as well as an in-depth analysis of Romania's political and economic transformation after the overthrow of Ceausescus. To this end, his work is successful.' - International Affairs
