This edited collection explores what mobility meant, and means, in the specific contexts of socialist and post-socialist Soviet and East European societies.Under thesocialist 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 attimes of shortages. These mobilities have been reshapedunder 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 theloss of subsidized travel greatly reduced fields of mobility. Bringing togethercontributors 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
