Item description for Changes in the Heart of Europe: Recent Ethnographies of Czechs, Slovaks, Roma, and Sorbs (Soviet and Post-Soviet Politics and Society 23). Edited by Timothy McCajor Hall and Rosie Read by Zdenek Salzmann...

From WW II until the Velvet Revolution, few outside anthropologists had access to Czechoslovakia, while only a handful of Czech and Slovak ethnologists published in Western journals. In recent years, anthropological interest in Slovakia and the Czech Republic has increased substantially. This volume brings together a broad sample of recent cutting-edge ethnographic studies by Czech and Slovak ethnographers as well as American and western European anthropologists. Contents: Raymond June on measuring "corruption" in Czech society; David Karjanen on structural violence and economic change in Slovakia; Karen Kapusta-Pofahl, Hana Hakov, and Marta Kolrov on women's civic organizing; Rebecca Nash on Czech feelings about social support and welfare reform; Denise Kozikowski on women's experience of breast cancer; Vera Sokolov on population policy and the sterilization of Romani women in Czechoslovakia, 1972-1989; James Quin on pornography and the commodification of queer bodies in Slovakia; Ben Hill Passmore on working women in a Moravian factory; Krista Hegburg on Roma social workers; Zdenek Uherek and Katerina Plochov on ethnic Czechs in Bosnia and Herzegovina; Leo atava on ethnic identity and language among Sorbian youth; Haldis Haukanes on history and autobiography in a Czech village; Davide Torsello on memory, geography, and local history in southern Slovakia; Peter Skalnk reviews Czech and Slovak community (re)studies in a European context. Afterword by Zdenek Salzmann.
