Transforming Management in Central and Eastern Europe by Roderick Martin
Book DescriptionTransforming Management in Central and Eastern Europe analyses changes in enterprises in seven European countries since 1989 - Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Russia, and Slovakia. Economic trends have differed vastly between these countries, but nevertheless, there are common objectives, common problems, and significant similarities in developments. This book shows the continuities, as well as the discontinuities, between the Socialist and the post-Socialist periods. It argues that Central and Eastern European countries are developing a distinctive, hybrid form of post-Socialist economic system, largely dominated by enterprise managers in alliance with state administrations-politicized managerial capitalism. Privatization has not transformed management practices, competition has.

Constructing Capitalisms, Hardback (March 2013)
This book provides an analysis of the changes in business systems of four Central and Eastern European countries - Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, and Romania - since the fall of Communism in 1989, drawing on the Varieties of Capitalism debate.
Investor Engagement, Hardback (July 2007)
Western business practice has been transformed since the 1980s, especially in the US and Britain, with the growth of shareholder value. This book examines the resulting change in relations between investors and managers as investors have become actively engaged with the companies in which they invest, the rationale for this, and forms it takes.
