9780415076265: The Price of Freedom: A History of East Central Europe from the Middle Ages to the Present

This comparative regional history of East Central Europe (Poland, Czechoslovakia and Hungary) explores such themes as the tension between the industrial urbanizing West and agrarian East Central Europe, problems of interrupted statehood, the rise of modern nationalism, democracy, and authoritarianism and Communism. Contemporary events in the region, the author argues, only become intelligible when viewed in their historical context. This book should be of interest to undergraduates, postgraduates and academics in the fields of East European history and Soviet studies.

About the Author:

Piotr S. Wandycz is Bradford Duree Professor of History at Yale University.

Review:

"'What happens to East Central Europe will affect the destinies of all of us so that it behoves us to gain familiarity with its history. Unlike most other historians, Professor Wandycz treats the region as a whole, in a single, masterly tract.' Istvan Deak, Columbia University, New York"
