Acta Poloniae Historica

"Austerities and Aspirations is an excellent compendium of comparative social and economic data on European societies in the second half of the twentieth century, proving a valuable addition to the libraries of all researchers of East- Central European societies and economies. It might not engage those who seek exciting stories and historical details. Nonetheless, it will undoubtedly provide historians, sociologists, and economists with a much--needed reliable data checkpoint for their qualitative research."
