Under socialism the anthropological sciences developed under conflicting pressures: on the
one hand Soviet influences, Marxist ideology and institutional changes, on the other the
continued influence of national traditions and of the distinction between Volkskunde and
Völkerkunde. The chapters bring out striking differences between the countries considered:
the German Democratic Republic, Poland, Czechoslovakia and Hungary; they also draw
attention to variation within countries, and between sub-branches of the discipline. Coverage
extends from the Stalinist years to the end of the socialist era, and the topics range from
folklore studies at home to fieldwork expeditions abroad.
