This collection of 15 original contributions reveals a complex interaction between communist ideology and post-fascist society. Following recent trends in everyday history, it examines how the change of 'becoming communist' was experienced by those wielding power as well as ordinary citizens. Questions explored include: what went on behind Politbüro closed doors? How did the police justify their mission to surveil society? What were the arguments on shop floors during the June 1953 insurrection? How did farmers experience collectivization? Did women feel genuinely emancipated by socialism? How did young people entertain themselves outside the classroom?
