About this item

Examining events and trends in East Central Europe after the demise of socialist regimes, political scientists, sociologists, and historians cover liberalism: dissident illusions and disillusions; whether conservatism is a counter-revolution; populism: endemic pasts and global effects; the left between communist legacy and neoliberal challenge; and politics of history: nations, war, revolutions. Among the topics are totalitarianism and the limits of Polish dissident political thought: late socialism and after, Czech post-dissident neoconservatives in post-communist transformation, the political lives of dead populists in post-socialist Slovakia, feminist criticism of the new democracies in Serbia and Croatia during the first half of the 1990s, and concepts of history and the nation in Hungarian politics 1989-2010.
