The Social Legacy of Communism

Front Cover
Cambridge University Press, Aug 26, 1994 - Political Science - 404 pages
1 Review
Current work on the transition from communism in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union has emphasized the 'polity' and the 'economy'; this book analyzes the 'society', and thereby helps fill an important gap in the literature. It endeavors to summarize developments and impose some coherence on the subject by treating four basic areas: ethnic issues, deviance and health, social cleavages, and labor and elitism.
