The Historical Atlas of Central Europe covers the area from Poland, Lithuania, and the eastern part of Germany to Greece and western Turkey and extends in time from the early fifth century to the present. This new edition of the Historical Atlas of East Central Europe, first published in 1993 to great acclaim, incorporates the enormous political changes that have taken place since 1989, taking into comments from seventy-five reviewers from seventeen countries. The final third of the volume has been completely reconceptualized and reconfigured with new maps, text, and statistical tables. The bibliography has been updated and expanded.

About the Author: Paul Robert Magocsi holds the Chair of Ukrainian Studies at the University of Toronto and is a fellow of the Royal Society of Canada. He is the author or editor of twenty-four books, including A History of Ukraine and the two-volume Of the Making of Nationalities There Is No End.

Editorial Reviews

A magisterial work, containing superbly drawn maps . . . with a lucid and impartial text that sets every important development in perspective.
Orientalia Christiana Periodica
A jewel of a reference work which shall certainly continue to be used by generations of scholars to come.
Library Journal
This first-rate sequel to the Historical Atlas of East Central Europe takes a mostly chronological approach to the region, providing histories of the various areas, as well as maps that show not just political boundaries but also population and population movements, canal and railroad construction, industrial growth, linguistic distribution, and cultural and educational institutions, among other factors. An effective use of color makes for maps that are easy to read and interpret. There is considerably more to this revised edition than the name change; the previous edition, though up-to-date for its time, was published just as the Soviet empire was crumbling and the Soviet Union itself was splintering into l5 independent republics. The current edition has integrated those historical changes and of 109 color maps presents 21 that are new and 41 that are substantially revised. As to the title change, Magocsi (chair, Ukrainian studies, Univ. of Toronto; A History of Ukraine) points out that "the articulate elements in many countries of this region consider eastern or even east-central to carry a negative connotation and prefer to be considered part of Central Europe." He adds that "precise boundaries" for the area are not fixed but are often a matter of opinion, so he has been guided mainly by geographical criteria. Wherever you believe "Central Europe" starts and ends, this volume is highly recommended for academic and larger public libraries.-Edward Cone, New York Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
School Library Journal
Gr 10 Up-When Magocsi's The Historical Atlas of East Central Europe (Univ. of Washington, 1993; o.p.) was published, it recorded the recent splintering of the Soviet Union; this new edition integrates those boundary changes and also includes more than 60 new or revised maps and tables. The atlas's new title reflects a choice based on geographical criteria and the wording reflects the preference of the population of the countries in question. The volume is arranged chronologically, with coverage beginning about A.D. 400 (roughly the time of the demise of the Roman Empire) and continuing through the end of the 20th century. The maps and tables provide information on military affairs; population and population movements; economy; ethnolinguistic distributions; and religious, cultural, and educational institutions. All are extremely well done. The use of color in the maps significantly eases reading and interpreting them. Well-written, objective historical summaries of that region's development at the time accompany the maps. Several of these synopses are also new or revised. This scholarly work has a four-page listing of map sources and a seven-page bibliography. The extensive index includes cross-references. This is an excellent resource for large public and academic libraries. High schools offering an AP course in European history should also consider purchase.-Peg Glisson, Mendon Center Elementary School, Pittsford, NY Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
