Law and History Review

"With her study on social legislation in interwar Bulgaria, in particular with respect to families and maternity, Baloutzova has certainly blazed the trail for other studies on similar topics to be expected on East and Southeast European countries. In an exemplary manner, she has shown that social legislation is not the direct result of social struggles alone, but also of the ruling elites' concepts of society and nation. Thereby, both concepts and legislation appear as authentic adaptations of pendants originally created in Western and Central Europe or even in the United States."
