Urbanization in Southeastern Europe displays significant idiosyncrasies. While the region was predominantly rural long into the 20th century, cities grew rapidly after WWII, causing deep socio-cultural changes which gained in momentum after the end of socialism. The articles in this volume, originally presented at the conference `Urban Life and Culture in Southeastern Europe' in Belgrade, May 2005, explore these changes past and present, focusing on urban culture, social topography, urban planning, and urban-rural relations.

Klaus Roth is Professor of European Ethnology at Munich University; Ulf Brunnbauer is Assistant Professor of History at the Institute for East European Studies, FU Berlin.
