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.

Journal: East European Politics and Societies.

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.

Under Verdery's examination, privatization and civil society appear not only as social processes, for example, but as symbols in political rhetoric. The classic pyramid scheme is not just a means of enrichment but a site for reconceptualizing the meaning of money and an unusual form of post-Marxist millenarianism.

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. It is not only in post-communist contexts that property rights are changing, but these contexts differ profoundly from others. In no Western country undergoing the privatization of socialized assets has social production existed on anything like the scale of that in the communist states. Moreover, public enterprise in the latter instances operated in political, economic, and jural systems governed by totally different rules from those of liberal capitalism, making the creation of post-communist private property rights a wholly different proposition from the divestiture of public property in countries such as Britain, France, or the United States. For these reasons, the process amply deserves the rapidly growing corpus of literature devoted to it.

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.
