Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Tina Rosenberg has traveled around the ruins of a fallen empire and she has returned with astonishing tales of human memory and struggle. The Haunted Land is the best portrait of post-imperial Eastern Europe around."--David Remnick, author of Lenin's Tomb

"Brilliant and impassioned... The definitive account of what the transition away from communism in Eastern Europe has meant in moral terms."--David Rieff, Los Angeles Times Book Review

New York Times Books of the Century
The portraits drawn by this compassionate reporter make one feel the fear weighing on people as they try to rebuild, along with the treacherous sense of comfort that entices many to evade personal responsibility for letting tyranny succeed as long as it did.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
MacArthur fellow Rosenberg's National Book Award-winning look at the uneasy transition from communism in eastern Europe. (June)
