Making capitalism without capitalists : class formation and elite struggles in post-communist Central Europe by Gil Eyal( Book )
18 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 358 libraries worldwide
"This investigation of the post-Communist societies in Eastern Europe since 1989 provides new insights into the functioning of modern capitalism. Whilst classical social theory has devoted considerable attention to the transition from feudalism to capitalism, Making Capitalism Without Capitalists is the first book to consider the transition from socialism to capitalism." "Eyal, Szelenyi and Townsley argue that the origins of those in charge of building capitalism will significantly affect the type of system that is eventually constructed. For capitalism, they contend, is not a single terminus but a range of destinations. By identifying the unique features of capitalism built on the ruins of socialist economies, this book is a major contribution to understanding and defining these differences."--Jacket

Cities after socialism : urban and regional change and conflict in post-socialist societies by Gregory D Andrusz( Book )
17 editions published between 1996 and 2011 in English and held by 356 libraries worldwide
At the heart of this book lie several crucial questions: What were socialist cities and what is succeeding them? What is the legacy of the old system for the new one? What are the dynamics of this transition? Are these remade cities similar in most respects to those in the 'advanced' capitalist world? Or are they more like the peripheral capitalist cities of the Third World, or some hybrid or new form? How diverse are the processes of transition in the different national urban systems? Is urbanization best understood as a functional consequence of advanced industrial societies, rather than of capitalism or socialism?

Patterns of exclusion : constructing Gypsy ethnicity and the making of an underclass in transitional societies of Europe by János Ladányi( Book )
9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 189 libraries worldwide
"Drawing on historical and demographic data from the past 150 years, Ivan Szelenyi and Janos Ladanyi examine how the social conditions of the Roma (Gypsies) has changed over time and across countries. While Gypsies always tended to be poor and at the margins of society, the depth and nature of their poverty and the ways they were excluded varied substantially. In addition to providing a detailed history of these changes, the book also contributes to debates regarding Gypsies' status as part of an underclass. The historical case studies show that during the nineteenth century Gypsies belonged to the lower class, during the interwar years they could be seen as a lower caste, and it is only during the last two decades that they are in the process of becoming an underclass. The underclass debate has so far been framed in ideological terms. This book's main aim is to turn this ideological controversy into an analytic project: under what socioeconomic conditions is a social group's situation sufficiently different from earlier times? Is its exclusion from society sufficiently rigid that underclass is the concept that best describes its condition?"--Publisher's Website

Focusing especially on the 1970s and 1980s in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union, this work provides an overview of reforms in socialist agrarian systems. Empirical evidence is used by the contributors to provide an assessment of how agrarian economies performed in different communist countries. The Soviet and Eastern European experience is contrasted with reforms in China, Vietnam and Cuba to provide a detailed account of agricultural restructuring after the collapse of communism in Europe and Asia
