"Red Hangover is a brave book, one that brims with urgency concerning the current state of the world and the possibilities for improving it-possibilities that are enhanced, she believes, by taking the communist experience seriously. In short, she makes the study of eastern Europe, both under socialism and after it, crucial in effort to envisage a more viable future." -- Katherine Verdery * Slavic Studies * "Kristen Ghodsee wrote Red Hangover for the nonexpert, especially for the student born after 1989 who is trying to make sense of the present. The truly broad readership I can envision for this book, however, encompasses not only young people but rather anyone concerned about the fate of democracy." -- Adrienne J. Cohen * American Ethnologist * "This is an extraordinary book . . . Different genres are employed to great effect, offering a multidimensional view of the postcommunist world. . . . A real contribution to the re-narration of European history after 1989." -- Wim de Jong * H-Socialisms, H-Net Reviews * "I have read and loved all Ghodsee's books, each one more than the last. Red Hangover is the most complex, melding personal and professional experience with history and political theory...." -- Deena Stryker * OpEd News * "A banquet of a book, full of unexpected dishes.... Ghodsee writes with moral seriousness and exceptional force, and Red Hangover is the rare academic book that is compulsively readable and thoroughly compelling." -- Patrick Iber * Los Angeles Review of Books *
