about this item

Southeast Europe's history of the last two centuries is marked by deep transformations and upheavals. The emergence and disappearance of states, ethnic conflicts and wars, changes of political systems, economic crises, migration movements and natural disasters. Most of them have been experienced as deep crises forcing people to adapt to often radically new situations. Often crisis management became a permanent way of life. The book focus es on the cultures of crisis, on the reactions of societies or individuals to them: on their impact on everyday life, on peoples' strategies of coping, on the processes of adaptation, and on peoples' attitudes. This volume concentrates on crises relating to migration and post-socialist transformation, to politics and religion, and to labour relations. Klaus Roth is professor em. at the Institute for European Ethnology of the Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich. Asker Kartan is professor of communication at the Advertising Department of Kadir Has University, Istanbul.
