Autobiographies of Transformation: Lives in Central and Eastern Europe
Mike Forrest Keen, Janusz Mucha
Taylor & Francis, 2006 - Biography & Autobiography - 242 pages
Autobiographies of Transformation is a completely unique history of sociology in Central and Eastern Europe in the post-Communist era.
Through the autobiographies of ten key sociological witnesses from the region, the sociological imagination is turned upon itself, resulting in a compelling and revealing account of the struggles, triumphs, and continuing challenges faced. The sociologists examined fall into three cohorts: early, mid and late career.
As participants, each of the sociologists included has witnessed the intersection of history and biography in Central and Eastern Europe. As sociologists, they have tried, and continue to try, to connect the two so that they and their fellow citizens may better understand their circumstances and the futures that may follow.
This revealing book, ideal for students and researchers of sociology, and Central and Eastern Europe studies, provides powerful and compelling autobiographical accounts, relating them to the current interest in this area's transformation.
