This volume joins a long series of works on social transformation emerging in Central and Eastern Europe. It has become a cliché to imagine social sciences in this region as primarily, and somewhat narcissistically, interested in the transformation processes currently in place in most of the CEE countries. Nevertheless, is seems that the interest of Central and Eastern Europeans in social transformation is perhaps less self-explanatory than it might seem at first sight. Moreover, it is also not quite as self-centered now as it used to be in the early eighties.
