The transformation of Central and Eastern Europe from Communist rule has opened the countries concerned to renewed assessment of their historical identity. These essays record and contribute to that reassessment, reminding us of the diversity of experience, largely ignored after the Second World War. Written by an international team of authors, some living and working in the countries concerned, others perceptive and sympathetic scholars from abroad, the articles range broadly over time and space to contribute to our understanding of Central and Eastern Europe's past and present and to help prepare for its future.

Editorial Reviews

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.
