Wounded identities in Central and Eastern Europe

Just recently appeared the very interesting book Freiheit und Populismus. Verwundete Identitäten in Ostmitteleuropa (Freedom and Populism. Wounded identities in Central and Eastern Europe) by András Máté-Tóth. The foundation Communicantes was very happy to further the realisation of this study into the changes of Central and Eastern European society since the fall of communism in 1989. Focusing on the historical wounds of the region and its specific memory culture Máté-Tóth tries to explain the significance of religion and of populism in the post-communist context of Central and Eastern Europe. A major part of the book is dedicated to the role of religion and its future challenges. Professor András Máté-Tóth, 1957, is a theologian, a sociologist of religion and a media expert. He is full professor of Religious Studies at the University of Szeged, Hungary. The introduction, table of content and epilogue can be found on the website of Springer Verlag.
