This collection of essays looks at the impact on women of the political changes which have taken place in East-Central Europe since the 1930s. It is unusual in combining a strong contemporary focus with re-evaluations of what the socialist experience has meant for women.

Essays from an August 1995 conference look at the impact on women of political changes which have taken place in East-Central Europe since the 1930s, combining a strong contemporary focus with re-evaluation of what the socialist experience has meant for women. Specialists from both East and West offer insight into women's lives and responses to change in culturally diverse countries which have a shared legacy of state socialism. They discuss the development of discourses on nationalism and motherhood, the relevance of Western feminism, and the interconnection of public and private spheres. Annotation c.
