The Anthropology of East Europe Review


How does one era end and another begin? How do people publicly express themselves in a crisis of transition? Improvised drama is one alternative. What follows are some recent personal observations in the form of an essay rather than a research article. The objective of this essay is to give a view of current sociopolitical transformations in Bulgaria. The passage through this period of transition is still incomplete at the time of this writing.


The Anthropology of East Europe Review is a journal of the East Europe Anthropology Group, funded by Cornell University's College of Human Ecology and the Soviet and East European Studies Program. This article can be found on their website:
