An especially challenging aspect of transformation in the post-communist states—challenging for both social policy and social theory—concerns the re creation of private property rights from the collective property of communism.

Among the first anthropologists to work in Eastern Europe, Katherine Verdery had built up a significant base of ethnographic and historical expertise when the major political transformations in the region began to take place. In this collection of essays dealing with the aftermath of Soviet-style socialism and the different forms that may replace it, she explores the nature of socialism in order to understand more fully its consequences. By analyzing her primary data from Romania and Transylvania and synthesizing information from other sources, Verdery lends a distinctive anthropological perspective to a variety of themes common to political and economic studies on the end of socialism: themes such as "civil society," the creation of market economies, privatization, national and ethnic conflict, and changing gender relations. Under Verdery's examination, privatization and civil society appear not only as social processes, for example, but as symbols in political rhetoric.

Kideckel on Verdery, 'What Was Socialism and What Comes Next?'

In —, I began to develop a research project on domestic violence in formal law and legal practice in post-socialist Eastern Europe. NGO activist colleagues in Hungary, Poland, and Romania told me that there was little to learn from that period. Full stop. There was nothing else to say. Academic colleagues in these countries, in contrast, tended to minimize the violence. This coded language, I soon learned, referred to the lower social classes—peasants and the lower reaches of the proletariat.

In My Life as a Spy , Verdery tells the riveting and complicated story of discovering that during her decades of ethnographic research in Romania, numerous friends and colleagues had informed on her to the secret police. She also uses the file to track down and interview several of the officers who handled her case as well as friends who informed on her. She approaches these confrontations not in a spirit of moral reckoning, but as an ethnographer trying to understand the social logic of surveillance under socialism.

Фонтейн побледнел. Он, конечно, понял, чем это грозит: червь сожрет фильтры, содержащие информацию в тайне, и без них она станет доступна всем без исключения. - Нам необходимо отключиться от Интернета, - продолжил Джабба.  - Приблизительно через час любой третьеклассник с модемом получит высший уровень допуска к американской секретной информации. Фонтейн погрузился в раздумья.

Как он и подозревал, надпись была сделана не по-английски. Беккер долго вглядывался в текст и хмурил брови.

Похоже, не один Танкадо умел создавать абсолютно стойкие шифры. Ее мысли прервал шипящий звук открываемой пневматической двери. В Третий узел заглянул Стратмор.

Лампочки в конце коридора не горели, и на протяжении последних двадцати метров можно было различать только смутные силуэты. Женщина с кровотечением… плачущая молодая пара… молящаяся маленькая девочка. Наконец Беккер дошел до конца темного коридора и толкнул чуть приоткрытую дверь слева.

 Шифр еще не вскрыт. Время ввода - двадцать три тридцать семь и восемь секунд, однако время завершения дешифровки не указано.  - Мидж полистала страницы.  - Ни вчера, ни. Бринкерхофф пожал плечами: - Быть может, ребята заняты сложной диагностикой.

Увидев кровь, Беккер понял, что ранен. Боли он не чувствовал и продолжал мчаться вперед по лабиринтам улочек Санта-Круса.
