In the early 1990s Russia began its transition to a market economy, and in response Russian universities started to import Western-style economics programs. This caused deep divisions and crises within Russian academia as the new imports contradicted and overturned the Soviet socialist dogmas which had been accepted as fact at all levels of society for decades. In addition to this painful reversal, the introduction of economics meant a necessary retraining of the entire cadre of academic economists, translating and publishing textbooks, re-designing curricula and restructuring departments to accommodate this formerly forbidden discipline. This book uses case studies to cast this difficult transformation in the light of an intercultural transplantation of ideas, practices and structures from Western to post-Soviet university settings, and is written by a Russian-born and American-educated scholar specializing in organizational behaviour.
