In South East Europe the three decades between the early 1980s and the present day have been marked by a historical caesura, which can be roughly described as the transition from a system of ‘real Socialism’ towards a concept that can be subsumed under the terms of ‘democracy’ and ‘free market economy’. The 1990s were characterized by the onset of...
