This edited collection explores what mobility meant, and means, in the specific contexts of socialist and post-socialist Soviet and East European societies. Under the socialist regimes, mobility was at the heart of everyday interactions with the state, from controls on travel and communications mobilities to daily experiences of transport usage and the immobility of queuing for goods at times of shortages. These mobilities have been reshaped under post-socialist regimes. While the collapse of socialism heralded a liberalization of international migration and increased automobility, new experiences of poverty, unemployment, and in the case of some states, war, plus the loss of subsidized travel greatly reduced fields of mobility. Bringing together contributors from the dynamic fields of Mobilities and Socialist/Post-Socialist Studies this book uses the focus on socialist and post-socialist mobilities to investigate fundamental intersections of power, control, resistance and inequality.
