This volume provides a compelling insight into 20th century generational identities in Estonia. Located on the borderline between East and West, Estonia offers a particularly concentrated example of multidirectional changes. It is the first collection of studies for the international reader that offers a wide-ranging analysis of generations in Estonia, including intergenerational relations, generational dynamics, socialisation and habitus, the perception of generational identity, and generations as carriers of memory. The chapters present original approaches to generational theory and are intended for a broad spectrum of researchers, students and the general public interested in social and cultural studies.
