The book analyses the developments taking place in Bulgaria in the years following November 10, 1989. The dynamics of the political and socio-economic changes in that period are comparable only to the most extreme periods of Bulgarias history. This study is not a political analysis. It is an attempt to follow the changes in peoples mentality. This book documents the enthusiasm of the negation of a chimera lasting half a century and the euphoria of the search for new roads. The volume consists of eight studies, seven of which deal with the democratic processes and developments in Sofia.
