Featuring  up-to-date and insightful analyses and comparative case studies from a  plethora of countries, this timely book explores ‘ideal’ socialist  cities and their transformation under new socio-economic and political  conditions after the fall of communism.

With  contributions from leading scholars in the field, this book prioritises  objective scientific knowledge and presents expert rethinking of the  historical experience of urban planning in the former socialist  countries of Eurasia. It draws on carefully selected examples of iconic  cities of socialist modernism, from the post-Soviet space, Central  Europe, and the Balkans. The book explores the ongoing transformation of  these cities: from uniformed urban environment to chaotic  post-modernist planning, from industrialisation to touristification,  from deideologisation to making new and still highly contested heritage.  

Written in an accessible and engaging style, this  book will be of interest to students and scholars in urban studies,  human geography, sociology, social anthropology, spatial planning, and  architectural practice.
