    The present issue of >i>Problems of Economic Transition>/i> focuses on Russian regional issues, which will undoubtedly become a regular and important theme not only for this journal, but also for the study of post-Soviet societies generally. To be sure, this is in large part a reflection of the substantial research in the West that is beginning to emerge on center-regional dynamics in Russia, as well as broader problems of decentralization in the successor states. Economists have concentrated principally on the high terrain of Russian macroeconomic politics, yet the decentralization that has already transpired is reflected in a broad diversity of regional approaches to the challenge of economic reform. Moreover, the relatively greater accountability of elected regional officials to their publics has made democratization a much more significant variable at the regional level than has yet been the case for the central government. Equally striking is the extent to which regional governments have turned away from the extremes of macroeconomic stabilization in order to focus on the restoration of production.
