This book examines the online memory wars in post-Soviet states where political conflicts take the shape of heated debates about the recent past, and especially World War II and Soviet socialism. To this day, former socialist states face the challenge of constructing national identities, producing national memories, and relating to the Soviet legacy. Their pasts are principally intertwined: changing readings of history in one country generate fierce reactions in others. In this transnational memory war, digital media form a pivotal discursive space one that provides speakers with radically new commemorative tools. Uniting contributions by leading scholars in the field, this edited volume is the first book to analyse these tools and to unlock the online vectors of post-socialist memory. This book will be of much interest to students of media studies, post-Soviet studies, Eastern European Politics, memory studies and International Relations in general.
