The Legacies of Communism in Eastern Europe

The political scientists Zoltan Barany and Ivan Volgyes bring together a distinguished group of contributors to examine the legacies of communism in Eastern Europe. The authors identify what is distinctive and lasting about the influence of the Communist period and the extent to which this Communist experience may have left unsolvable problems. The volume pays special attention to the impact of the Communist legacies on four areas: politics, society, the economy, and the environment.

Contributors are Zoltan Barany, Ivan Volgyes, Thomas A. Baylis, Elez Biberaj, Jane L. Curry, Barbara Jancar-Webster, Andrzej Korbonski, Bennett Kovrig, Daniel N. Nelson, Robin Alison Remington, Luan Troxel, and Sharon L. Wolchik.

About the Authors

Zoltan Barany is assistant professor of government at the University of Texas at Austin. Ivan Volgyes is professor of political science at the University of Nebraska—Lincoln.

Reviews

Both the regional and country studies that comprise the volume serve the useful purpose of reminding us, and perhaps the now discontented East Europeans who are tempted to recall the last decade of Communist power as the good old days, how fatally flawed that system had become.

- John R. Lampe - Journal of Comparative Economics

This book comprises several extensively researched and well-written chapters that trace political (both domestic and international), economic, environmental, and social developments in the countries of East Central Europe and the Balkans since the collapse of communism. It also includes a number of essays that treat each of these themes from a regional perspective.
