Metropolitan processes in post‐communist states: an introduction

Metropolitan processes in post‐communist states: an introduction Abstract.This study introduces a collection of theme issue papers on metropolitan processes in post‐communist states. We first identify and discuss five key significant socialist‐era legacy aspects that continue to mould the course of events in the post‐communist urban scene. These are central planning, land allocation, the second economy, defence considerations, and the implications of the ideological leadership of the communist parties. We then procede to investigate the literature on the unfolding urban geography of post‐communism and the factors underpinning its development, and we place the papers collected in this theme issue into their context. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Geografiska Annaler Series B Human Geography Taylor & Francis
