Summary This anthology of fourteen original essays is the first collection of transnational studies on postD1945 western and eastern European society written by historians. The contributors target three particular moments of rapid change in postwar Europe-the moment of liberation, 1943D48; the 1960s; and 1989 as communism began to crumble. The collection opens a range of possibilities for historians of postD1945 European society, while providing all contemporary historians with a much-needed guide to the methodology of transnational history
