Welfare State Transformations. Comparative Perspectives.

Martin Seeleib-Kaiser (ed.). Houndmills and New York, Palgrave Macmillan 2008.

„Metamorphoses of Welfare States in Central and Eastern Europe“, pp. 79-95

From a scholarly point of view, the processes of their societal transformations have been – and still are – a series of exciting natural experiments.
