Current work on the transition from communism in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union has emphasized the "polity" and the "economy"; this book treats four basic areas: ethnic issues, deviance and health, social cleavages, and labor and elitism.

Industry Reviews

"This fine volume hopefully will be the first in a series of studies on the social consequences of communism...Some of the findings are truly outstanding." Foreign Affairs "This carefully researched collection is based on scores of primary and secondary sources: newspaper articles, opinion poles, surveys, and a host of available relevant statistical data. Almost superseding its value as a source of information is its statement on the state of the discipline. The methodological diversity is simply breathtaking." The Historian "The volume contains matters of interest..." Canadian Journal of History "This fine volume hopefully will be the first in a series of studies on the social consequences of communism...Some of the findings are truly outstanding... These findings make clear how seriously communism was misjudged and are invaluable to understanding how civil society can reconstruct itself in the East." Foreign Affairs "...The Social Legacy of Communism successfully analyzes the effects of communism on Eastern Europe and the successor states of the Soviet Union...the book is a useful work area scholars and students of postcommunist Eastern Europe and the CIS." Canadian Slavonic Papers "This carefully researched collection is based on scores of primary and secondary sources: newspaper articles, opinion polls, surveys, and a host of available relevant statistical data. Almost superseding its value as a source of information is its statment on the state of the discipline. The methodological diversity is simply breathtaking." Alice-Catherine Carls, The Historian
