I am in the last stages of completing a new book manuscript, co-authored with Grigore Pop-Eleches, on the effect of the legacies of communism on attitudes towards political and economic issues among post-communist citizens.  Tentatively titled Communism's Shadow, drafts of Chapters 1, 2, and 4 are now available here.  You can also download a more concise conference paper version of these three chapters.
