Taking Stock of Shock

Social Consequences of the 1989 Revolutions

Kristen Ghodsee and Mitchell Orenstein

  • Examines 27 countries over the last 30 years of transition in the post-socialist world
  • Gives a bird's eye view of why narratives of the transition process differ so greatly among scholars from different disciplines
  • Draws from political science and ethnography to put forth an in-depth, interdisciplinary understanding of Eastern Europe
  • Exposes the positive and negative impacts of the post-1989 period on the lives of all former socialist citizens, not just the so-called "winners"
