Description

Zsuzsa Gille combines social history, cultural analysis, and environmental sociologyto advance a long overdue social theory of waste in this study of waste management, Hungarian statesocialism, and post–Cold War capitalism. From 1948 to the end of the Soviet period, Hungarydeveloped a cult of waste that valued reuse and recycling. With privatization the oldenvironmentally beneficial, though not flawless, waste regime was eliminated, and dumping and wasteincineration were again promoted. Gille’s analysis focuses on the struggle between aBudapest-based chemical company and the small rural village that became its toxic dumpsite.
