520    This book presents a novel view of healthcare system 
       transition in post-communist countries. It is the first 
       region-wide comparative study of hospital governance in 
       Eastern Europe. Comprehensive new material shows the 
       evolution and significance of governance, complementing 
       recent publications on the topic from industrialised 
       countries. Throughout the book, governance is described 
       and substantiated as a major component that, together with
       provider payment mechanisms, defines the hospital sector's
       operations. This view subscribes to the economists' 
       growing appreciation of extra-financial aspects in the 
       discussion of incentives and regulation of healthcare 
       markets. In particular, the book explains how governance 
       arrangements may affect the outcomes of healthcare 
       financing reforms, and should thus be seen as a critical 
       determinant of their success or failure. This new model of
       thinking about healthcare system transition emerges from 
       an analysis of 22 countries over the course of two 
       decades. While the primary focus of the study is on 
       developing the hospital sector, an extensive background 
       chapter provides a standalone introduction to the 
       dynamically changing landscape of healthcare in Eastern 
       Europe and an overview of the various problems and 
       challenges the region is facing. Practitioners, policy-
       makers, academics and students interested in Eastern 
       European healthcare systems, their origins, current status
       and ways forward, will appreciate the book's reflections 
       on the problem complexity, the clarity of its concepts, 
       and its accessible style of presentation
