Retroactive justice : prehistory of post-communism by István Rév( Book )

8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Past for the Eyes : East European Representations of Communism in Cinema and Museums after 1989( )

in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How do museums and cinema shape the image of the Communist past in today's Central and Eastern Europe? This volume is the first systematic analysis of how visual techniques are used to understand and put into context the former regimes. After history "ended" in the Eastern Bloc in 1989, museums and other memorials mushroomed all over the region. These efforts tried both to explain the meaning of this lost history, as well as to shape public opinion on their society's shared post-war heritage. Museums and films made political use of recollections of the recent past, and employed selected museum, memorial, and media tools and tactics to make its political intent historically credible. Thirteen essays from scholars around the region take a fresh look at the subject as they address the strategies of fashioning popular perceptions of the recent past. "Books on the CEE transformations that deal with media and popular cultures should be welcomed. Past for the Eyes belongs to this extraordinary breed. The book is devoted to the visual representations of the socialist / communist past and the forms they took. The interconnected processes of visualization of the past, and the collective memory sedimentation are the main focus. The book brings together perspectives of linked but still distinctive ways of enquiry: visual studies, cultural studies, area studies, museum studies and contemporary history with its passion for ethnography and oral evidence

Between past and future : the revolutions of 1989 and their aftermath( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The list of contributors is impressive withnot a single dull chapter...; the editors are to be congratulated for making available such a stimulating and timely, if not timeless, collection" - Slavic Review "[T]his is a book that will serve many intellectual tastes and interests, and that will certainly prove thought provoking for anyone who reads it... I recommend it to anybody who wants to witness the analythical depth and span with which the meaning of 1989 can be approached." - Extremism & Democracy The tenth anniversary of the collapse of communism in Central and Eastern Europe provides the starting point for this thought-provoking analysis. Between Past and Future reflects upon the past ten years and considers what lies ahead for the future. An international group of distinguished academics and public intellectuals, including former dissidents and active politicians, engage in a lively exchange on the antecedents, causes, contexts, meanings and legacies of the 1989 revolutions. At a crossroads between past and future, the contributors to this seminal volume address all the crucial issues -- liberal democracy and its enemies, modernity and discontent, economic reforms and their social impact, ethnicity, nationalism and religion, geopolitics, electoral systems and political power, European integration and the tragic demise of Yugoslavia. Based on the results of recent research on the ideologies behind one of the most dramatic systematic transformations in world history, and including contributions from some of the world's leading experts, Between Past and Future is an essential reference book for scholars and students of all levels, policy-makers, journalists and the general reader interested in the past and future prospects of Central & Eastern Europe

The 1956 reference information paper (RIP) by Open Society Archives( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"The 1956 Reference Information Paper (RIP) was compiled by OSA staff for scholars, students and other researchers familiar with archival finding aids. Since it was first published in 1996 the original version of the 1956 RIP has already been updated once, but the latest version is a radically more comprehensive list of all OSA archival records dealing with the 1956 Hungarian Revolution and its aftermath. This thematic finding aid is intended as a guide for researchers, leading through the traditional archival structure of Fonds-Subfonds-Series and extending its coverage to folders and in many cases to items in different languages, with digital records attached. The hierarchical approach is an unquestionably useful tool for professional researchers who wish to know both the archival and organizational context of the records and files created in a given period. Although OSA will continue its efforts to provide this cross sectional information in ever user-friendlier ways, making more and more digitized documents available on-line, the structure of cross-references in our digital holdings will provide new ways of assessing and searching the collections."
