Volume 4 Issue 1A new issue of The Hungarian Historical Review (www.hunghist.org) has been published entitled "Everyday Collaboration with the Communist Regimes in Eastern Europe". One of the aims of this issue is to develop a new interpretation of ‘collaboration’ with the communist regimes in Eastern Europe by using terms such as ‘cooperation’ and ‘political participation’. The articles focus not only on secret police reports but also on the role of intelligentsia in Eastern Europe, the party bureaucrats, the artists, the Church-state accommodation, and on cooperation between the local citizens and the Soviet troops. The issue seeks to find new directions for a field that is often disrupted by the politically charged atmosphere in which stories of collaboration are revealed. More at www.hunghist.org
