1057/9780230594296 - Discourse and Transformation in Central and Eastern Europe, Edited by Aleksandra Galasinska and Michał Krzyżanowski 38 Discourse and Transformation in Central and Eastern Europe social change. 14 In sum, this introductory chapter emphasises the necessity of a context-sensitive and interdisciplinary approach which recognises the multilayered and multidimensional character of the unprecedented forms of modernisation and transformation specific for the region in question. Notes 1.

Michaela Tzankoff (2001, p. 13) states, for example, that transformation has recently been approached from four main perspectives: a) system-oriented and modernisation-theoretical approaches (focusing on the interplays and interconnections between economic and social development); b) cultural approaches (focusing on interplays between religion, culture and social interactions); c) structural approaches (focusing on state-system and social classes); and d) actor-oriented approaches (focusing on actions of particular political actors).

While the cyclical nature of modernisation, or its ‘non-linearity’ (Beck, Giddens and Lash, 1994), is a highly contested claim (although, as it seems, it proves to some extent valid in the case of post-1989 Eastern European modernisation where ‘faster’ and ‘slower’ stages of development have been visible; see below), another key premise of NMA allows for the fact that modernisation (in its character/pace) is highly context-dependent and cannot be ‘measured’ with respect to any ideal-typical (and, by now, outdated) models.
