Mastery and Lost Illusions

Space and Time in the Modernization of Eastern and Central Europe

Edited by: Wlodzimierz Borodziej, Stanislav Holubec and Joachim von Puttkamer
This volume highlights the specific experiences and challenges of modernity in twentieth-century Eastern and Central Europe. Contributors ask how spatial and temporal conditions shaped the region’s transformation from a rural to an urban, industrialized society in this period and investigate the state’s role in the mastery of space, particularly in the context of state socialism. The volume also sheds light on the ruralization of cities and mutual perceptions of the rural and urban populations in this region.
