Class Cultures in Post-Socialist Eastern Europe, Hardback Book


This book investigates the extent to which social class has changed in Eastern Europe since the fall of communism.

Based on extensive original research, the book discusses how ideas about class are viewed by both working class and middle class people.

The book examines how such people's social identities are shaped by various factors including economic success, culture and friendship networks.

The present class situation in Eastern Europe is contrasted to what prevailed in Communist times, when societies were officially classless, but nevertheless had Communist party elites.
