Righting Wrongs in East Europe

Overview

Overview

One of the most painful aspects of the transition process in East-Central Europe is the attempt to address some of the serious human rights abuses that occurred in the name of Communism as well as during the pre-Communist era. Istvan Pogany's book is a welcome and original contribution to the literature on this transformation process. The first half of the book examines human rights violations from the late 1930s through to the collapse of the regimes in 1989/90, showing that human rights abuses were also characteristic of many of the stridently anti-communist regimes which held power during the late 1930s and early 1940s, as well as of the coalition governments which were formed in the aftermath of the War. In the second half of the book, the author traces the policies that have been adopted or proposed by recent administrations with a view to "righting the wrongs" of the Communist regimes.
