      Historical Legacies of Communism in Russia and Eastern Europe takes careful stock of how these legacies matter (and, alternatively, how they fade from significance). Representing the best of historically informed social science, this book is conceptually innovative, empirically grounded, contextually sensitive, and intellectually cturer: Cambridge University Press. The authors of The Black Book of Communism have also estimated that million people were killed under communist rule in other states: 2 million in North Korea, 2 million in Cambodia, million in Africa, million in Afghanistan, 1 million in Vietnam, 1 million in Eastern Europe .

      In political and social sciences, communism (from Latin communis, "common, universal") is the philosophical, social, political, and economic ideology and movement whose ultimate goal is the establishment of the communist society, which is a socioeconomic order structured upon the common ownership of the means of production and the absence of social classes, money, and the state. But once Communist control over Poland was surrendered peacefully, Communist rule anywhere else in Eastern Europe became unsustainable, because that rule had all along been based solely on the fear of Soviet armed intervention. The rapid unraveling of those regimes was a foregone conclusion once the Soviet military threat was removed.

        In addressing the legacy left by communist rule in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE), we must first appreciate the definition of both ‘Communism’ and ‘Post-Communism’. Within this discussion we will cover both of these definitions whilst analysing the social, political and economic effects of the Communist legacy. With astonishing speed, communist rule ended in Eastern Europe, the Berlin Wall came tumbling down, and the nature of Europe was changed entirely. In , those countries, from Germany to Bulgaria to Poland, have all mounted celebrations of the twentieth anniversary of this hope-filled year.

Eastern Europe’s economies are not catching up with their Western neighbors as quickly as many had hoped. The latest Eurostat figures on economic growth in Europe, released earlier this month, show a troubling trend. While growth is returning to Europe after several difficult years, Eastern Europe is not converging with “old Europe,” the pre EU members.

Transition in Central and Eastern Europe has led to a U-shaped response of output: a sharp decline in output followed by recovery. Most of the countries of Central Europe seem now firmly on the upside; most of the countries of Eastern Europe are still close to the bottom of the U: an optimistic view is that they are now negotiating the turn.

Communism failed in Eastern European countries for the same reasons it routinely fails in others — corruption and mismanagement of goods results in the needs of citizens not being met, which usually leads to a civil uprising, and eventually the end of communist rule.

While the economic system known as communism may have worked well on paper, the political form forced on Eastern European. Issues addressed include inflation, privatization, enterprise restructuring, banking reform and labor market policy, and the role of decentralization in China's growth.
