Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'a well-written book' - Tribune
Booknews
Extending his discussion to include the evolution of the region since 1991, the author examines the attempt to create and maintain a functioning democracy, the development of a market economy, the breakdown of stability in Bosnia and Hercegovina, and the realignment of Eastern Europe towards the west. He places the revolutions of 1989-1991 within the context of each country's historical tradition, including discussions of Albania, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, and the Yugoslav federation.
