After the Fall: Central and Eastern Europe since the Collapse of Communism


This collection of articles was first gathered and presented to a conference held at the University of Nottingham, organised by the Institute for Russian Soviet Central and Eastern European Studies and the School of History. The objective was to mark the tenth anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall with a wide-ranging review of the state of the post-communist world that was inaugurated by that highly symbolic event. To do this, we have drawn on scholarship from international relations, politics, economics, sociology, literature, geography, cultural studies, and Russian studies. Space limitations make it impossible to cover every aspect, country or theme, but these papers do constitute a vivid and incisive guide, which offers new observations and in many cases original data to build a comprehensive picture of the impact of the first ten years of post-communist developments.
