More than a decade after the fall of the Berlin Wall, the cities and regions of the former socialist countries are still in a phase of transition. The different political, social and cultural paths of their development are bringing up the question whether it is still adequate to qualify them as «post-socialist». How long will this «post» be of any meaning? This book discusses the differences and similarities of cities in Central and Eastern Europe on their way into the globalized world.
