Discussions of the post-socialist city can founder on the definition of post-socialism (see Andrusz (2001) Anthropolis). Lin (2004) Eurasian Geog. & Econ. 45, 1 argues that the interaction of the socialist legacy of industrialization ‘with the new forces of marketization and globalization has given rise to a peculiar pattern of simultaneous industrialization and tertiarization, differing from the Western norm of linear progression’. See also Hirt (2007) Urb. Geog. 28, 8; try K. Stanilov (2007).
