Review quote

Praise for the Previous Edition"Rothschild fills a special niche, providing a succint and accessible summary to a complex political history ... For a concise yet scholarly political history of East-Central Europe, there is nothing comparable ... This clear and intelligent book will be useful to students and general readers alike." -- Perspectives on Political Science"By far the most reliable and incisive analysis of the rise and fall of the Communist bloc in Eastern Europe. My students found it immensly helpful." -- Warren Lerner, Duke University"Updated edition makes this an authoritative synopsis of post-1945 East Central Europe, giving more perspective on changes and challenges of the present. Additions to the bibliography keep up with progress in scholarship, adding to the book's value as reference and source." -- Richard F. Crane, University of Connecticut"Essential reading for both students and their professors to obtain a balanced account of the nations of East Central Europe since the Second World War." -- Peter Black, George Mason Universityshow more
