From Economic Crisis to Reform given Honorable Mention for ASEEES Ed A. Hewett Book Prize

In addition to honoring two Princeton University Press books with the Marshall Shulman Book Prize, the Association for Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies (ASEEES) has also awarded Grigore Pop-Eleches’ From Economic Crisis to Reform: IMF Programs in Latin America and Eastern Europe an Honorable Mention for the 2010 Ed A. Hewett Book Prize.

The Ed. A. Hewitt Book Prize is awarded to “outstanding publications on the political economy of the centrally planned economies of the former Soviet Union and East Central Europe and their transitional successors,” said the ASEEES official awards annoucement.

Pop-Eleches’ book, which examines comparative evidence from the initiation and implementation of International Monetary Fund (IMF) programs in Latin America and Eastern Europe, has also recently won the Best Book Award from the European Politics Section of the American Political Science Association (APSA). Congratulations, Grigore!
