The stream of information concerning post-socialist countries is increasing all the time: it is being produced by the countries themselves for their own uses, by the EU as well as by various international institutions. However, there is still a need for more rigorous academic research with a sound theoretical and critical orientation. The present volume has been written and compiled in this academic spirit. The articles in this volume deal with different aspects of post-socialist transition in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, including agriculture and agricultural companies, industrial enterpris

The world confronts major challenges in rural development as it enters the 21st century. Most of the world’s poverty is in rural areas, and will remain so, yet there is a pro-urban bias in most countries’ development strategies, and in their allocation of public investment funds.

Lockers clang shut, bells ring, young people call to each other about the night’s ballgame or the upcoming social event, halls are filled with jostling and pushing students. These seem like experiences that are universal to all teens in North America. However, while all schools have some common elements, education across North America varies as dramatically as the geography does. Schools and what happens in those schools look very different in inner-city Chicago than they do in a small fishing village in northern Newfoundland, a remote town in the mountains of North Dakota, an island com
