Does East Go West?

Anthropological Pathways Through Postsocialism

Edited by: Christian Giordano, Francois Ruegg, Andrea Boscoboinik

Does East Go West? examines the study of post-socialism from an anthropological perspective. These social systems have posed a challenge to anthropological theory that has been the subject of lively exchanges for over 20 years now. Can post-socialism as a concept adequately apply to the current situation in Eastern Europe? One of the answers proposed here is that specific elements derived from postcolonial studies may prove very useful in analyzing Eastern Europe's post-socialist countries.
