The book opens up a new field for sociological research. It studies frontiers that separate places as catalysts for transitions and innovations. It examines the methodologies of social transformations analysis. It has particular importance for the study of social changes in Eastern Europe. In the early 1990's the modernizing trends in this region were connected with tranzitology paradigms. While the problems of social process multiplicity for the post-communist societies were neglected by scholars. This book looks at their inclusion in world tendencies and how this shaped local perspectives. By outlining the critical review of tranzitology theory the authors focus on its variations. Borders are not merely viewed geographically but as also determining social and cultural practices. A new trend in social theory is formed in this book. One underlying conclusion is that Eastern Europe constitutes a temporary, conditioned, discursive space. This text is an attempt to be interlined into the vocabulary of contemporary humanities and social knowledge concerning the dynamic processes for the region of Eastern Europe.
