Living (with) Borders: Identity Discourses on East-West Borders in Europe
"This book focuses on the complex cultural identities of people who live in communities that straddle the border that stretches from the Adriatic to the Baltic Sea. The macro world of politics - the outcome of the Second World War, the collapse of the Soviet Union and of Yugoslavia - imposed major social, political and economic changes for each of three generations of people currently living in these communities." "A consortium of researchers from the countries in question conducted fieldwork and interviews with members of such three-generation families. All used identical and innovative methods of research and data evaluation. The results unearth an astounding wealth of data relating to people's everyday experiences, their memories of the past, and their understanding of and feelings about 'the others' across the border."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
