For the first time in any language, here is an atlas that covers all of East Central Europe, from the early fifth century through 1992. The atlas encompasses the countries of Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Yugoslavia, Macedonia, Albania, Bulgaria, and Greece. Also included are the eastern part of Germany (historic Mecklenburg, Brandenburg, Prussia, Saxony, and Lusatia), Bavaria, Austria, northeastern Italy (historic Venetia), the lands of historic Poland-Lithuania (present-day Lithuania, Belarus, and Ukraine up to the Dnieper River), Moldova, and western Turkey.
Other volumes preceded publication of volume 1 in the series, conceived as an introduction and survey of knowledge about the region (no volume deals with a single country). The Atlas contains 89 color maps--some political, some thematic-- which are arranged chronologically and accompanied by extensive text and numerous tables. The bibliography is thorough. Annotation c.
