A Society Transformed
Hungary in Time-Space Perspective

Edited by Rudolf Andorka, Tamás Kolosi, Richard Rose and György Vukovich

"Anyone with an interest in the development of society will obtain many ideas from this book and will be rewarded with an understanding of the effect of the fall of the communist regime in Hungary in the context of other changes." - The Statistician

"The book could be a useful resource for those searching for sociological data to support claims about recent economic transformations in Hungary." - Slavic and East European Journal

In the past half-century every Central and East European society has been twice subject to transformation. Initially, Hungary was transformed by Communist-style modernization, increasing industry, expanding secondary education and improving health. The second shock was the collapse of the Communist regime and the introduction of democratic institutions and a market economy. How much or how little impact has institutional change had on the lives of ordinary people?

Drawing on detailed surveys, highlighted in tables and figures, the authors identify long-term changes in Hungary from the late 1940s to the late 1980s and provide an in-depth analysis of the impact of the collapse of the Communist system in the 1990s. They also compare long-term and short-term change in Hungary with trends in other Central and Eastern European countries.
