Reviews

“This is one of the richest volumes of its kind – certainly among those focusing on Central and Eastern Europe (CEE). … This challenging and extensive contribution, rich in novel theoretical and empirical approaches alike, is highly recommended to all, not least in CEE itself where the subject is still largely approached from classic and quantitative angles.” (Péter Balogh, Hungarian Geographical Bulletin, Vol. 64 (4), 2015)
