Abstract

This review essay offers a critique of some key ideas in the comparative-historical economic sociology of the post-state-socialist transformation in eastern Europe. It argues that there is a need for theories that /1/ take the continued effects of the past in to account when analysing the present, /2/ explicitly consider the connectedness of the post-state-socialist societies to the rest of the world, and /3/ tally the effects of the global context into which the post-state-socialist societies arrived after the regime change.

Keywords: social change, transformation, world economy, world system, history
