Overview

Exit into History: A Journey Through the New Eastern Europe / Edition 1

In this arresting, intimate narrative journey, award-winning Eva Hoffman returns to her Polish homeland and five other countries—Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, and the two nations of the former Czechoslovakia—historically transformed by the demise of Communism. The result is the penetrating personal odyssey across the “other Europe” and a vivid portrayal of a landscape in the midst of change. Hoffman combines the wise perspective of an outsider and the passionate concern of a native daughter to illuminate the forces informing the region’s complex politics as she captures the texture of everyday life in a world in flux.
 
“Indispensable for anyone who wants to seriously come to grips with the experience of Eastern Europe.”—The Cleveland Plain Dealer
 
“Complex and full of the unexpected . . . Hoffman earns our trust as an observer.”—Tina Rosenberg, New York Newsday
 
“Written with incredible literary talent and intellectual soundness . . . An indispensable clue for anyone who is keen to understand how the new Europe is emerging from the debris of the Cold War period.”—Ryszard Kapuscinski
