In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS The experimental vignette that tested the effects of lustration systems was embedded in surveys conducted in 2007 by CVVM in the Czech Republic, Tárki in Hungary, and OBOP in Poland in 2007. The collaboration with the survey agencies that belong to the most renowned in the region would have been impossible without a grant from the United States Institute of Peace (Grant SG 100–05S). In addition, my gratitude goes to all the institutions and individuals who helped me with this project during the past decade; this research was conducted under the auspices of several institutions , namely, the University of the Witwatersrand, the City University of Hong Kong, the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Yale University, and Newcastle University. The fieldwork was conducted under the auspices of the Czech Academy of Science, Central European University, and Copernicus University. A number of individuals both inside and outside these institutions commented on the conceptualization of personnel systems, advised me on the research design, provided me with conditions for writing the book or with research assistance, or worked as interpreters, translators, or editors. I would like to thank Anikó Balogh, Derek Bell, Tomas Berglund, Tamás Berki, Bill Case, Cheung Yuet-wah, Filip Gołe biewski, Gábor Halmai, Ian Holliday, Stathis Kalyvas, Pierre Landry, William Maloney, Zdena Mansfeldova ́, Markéta Moore, Zdena Pospı́šilová, Piotr Prosol, Christopher Roederer , Jeremy Seekings, Andrew Skeen, Iván Szelényi, Ting Kwok-fai, Gábor Tóka, Jiřı́ Vinopal, Glenda Webster, Katarzyna Wilk, Agata Zadroz .na, Andrzej Zybertowicz, the anonymous reviewers of my work, and other individuals who helped me or advised me with respect to about the project. I would also like to thank to Peter Agree, Erica Ginsburg, Jennifer Backer, and other members of the team at the University of Pennsylvania Press. My special thanks go to Susanne Y. P.

Any errors or omissions are my sole responsibility. I started to study the processes of dealing with the past in 1998. Since 2000, I have presented numerous papers on the topic of lustration at specialized workshops as well as at major international conferences in political science, political psychology, and law and society.
