Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Transformation of Central and Eastern Europe from communist rule has opened the countries concerned to renewed assessment of their historical identity. Papers from an August 1995 conference record and contribute to that reassessment, reminding us of the diversity of their experience, largely ignored after WWII. Articles range broadly over time and space, from the establishment of neighborhoods in medieval Poland, to the collapse of communist regimes and attempts to devise new structures and institutional arrangements.
