Book's frontpage

Post-communism has been the dominant political factor of the 1990s of the XX century in eastern Europe as a part of the post-cold order redefinition of Europe.

This book, as part of a series of four, is the attempt by a group of scholars belonging to different disciplines to analyse from an inner point of view the most crucial achievements which have been got by a representantive of ECE and SEE countries during the 1990s, marking their own transition processes and making then possible positive outcomes.
The book try to explains with a series of different case studies why in post-communist transition processes the nature of the changes invested all the pillars of a political society, from a new state building process, to the national identity; from the achievement of a new sovereignity to the inclusion into the globalization flows; from centralization processes to new forms of decentralization.
