Michał Buchowski (Professor of Ethnology and Cultural Anthropology, Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznań)

Chris Hann is a recognized anthropological expert on socialist societies, as well as on Karl Polanyi’s theory of economy embedded in social relations. In this book he applies this double knowledge to a study of the neoliberal postsocialist social formation that has emerged in the last three decades in the region of Polanyi’s origin. This repatriation of his ideas brings first-rate, critical interpretation of the processes currently unfolding in Central and Eastern Europe.
