Journal of Communist Studies and Transition Politics

The face of Europe has been transformed by the demise of the Soviet Union and the collapse of communist party rule in Eastern Europe. Within a series of countries, some of them erstwhile members of a Soviet bloc, others once part of the Soviet Union itself, a deep process of adjustment is under way. Retitled to reflect these far-reaching changes, The Journal of Communist Studies and Transition Politics devotes particular attention to this truly epochal process of regime change, including in its material contributions from within the affected societies. At the same time, it follows the effects of this upheaval on communist parties, ruling and non-ruling, both in Europe and in the wider world.
