Abstract: The ex-Soviet republics' potential cannot be ignored, but history has placed formidable obstacles in the way of transforming their construction industries. The author, who has extensive experience in academia and on construction sites in the former Soviet Union, discusses the rise of the Soviet construction sector; the education and training of workers and engineers; the industry's reorganization since the end of the Soviet Union; the role of individual attitudes toward change; avoiding crime; and joint ventures and other ways in which Western firms can enter the market.
