Central Europe is a paradox. On the one hand it is the heart of Europe, a region still full of the literature, classical music and high culture of the vanished comic opera world of 19th-century Vienna and Budapest; and on the other hand it is remnant of the Soviet Empire, economically devastated and socially crippled by decades of Communist Party rule.

Leading historians, specialists in art and literature, economists and political scientists from East and West present a stock-tacking ten years after the fall of the Berlin Wall and the end of past era. From contemporary security issues through the prospects for European Union expansion to the deep cultural and historical roots of the countries of the region, this volume of essays will do much to improve your knowledge and understanding.
