Summary
"The present volume, In Search of Better Times : Myth and Memory in Eastern and Central Europe, brings together a range of case studies of myth making and myth breaking from the nineteenth century to the present day. In particular, it makes a novel contribution to the study of the complex process through which memories are transformed into myths. This problematic interplay between memory and myth-making is analyzed in conjunction with the role of myths in the political and social life of the region"--Provided by publisher
