New Directions in Environmental Management in Hungary

At the time when I began writing this paperl the economic and social system of Hungary and of all Eastern Europe was entirely different from what it is now. I was honored to be asked to present this paper in 1989, when there were "socialist" countries in Europe even if under various "reforms." Today, most East-Central European countries have pluralistic, democratic governments, and they seem to have given up the idea of communism and even socialism.
