About the Author:

Mary Elizabeth King is professor of peace and conflict studies at the University for Peace, an affiliate of the United Nations. A political scientist, she is also distinguished scholar at the American University Center for Global Peace, Washington, D.C., and Rothermere American Institute Fellow, University of Oxford, Britain. She is a veteran of the U.S. civil rights movement and in 1988 won a Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Book Award for her memoir, Freedom Song: A Personal Story of the 1960s Civil Rights Movement. She has spent her career studying collective nonviolent action in political conflicts, about which she has written extensively. Her latest book is A Quiet Revolution: The First Palestinian Intifada and Nonviolent Resistance. Supported by the United States Institute of Peace, she is working on a study of a Gandhian struggle in India against untouchability during 1924-1925. In 2003 in Mumbai (Bombay), India, King was given the Jamnalal Bajaj International Award, which recognizes the promotion of Gandhian values.

From Booklist:

The fourth publication in CQ’s TimesReference series, this work follows the same basic format of earlier titles—carefully selected articles from the New York Times with accompanying essays. Here, the focus is on the transformation of Eastern Europe in the 1980s, 1990s, and early-twenty-first century, with an emphasis on nonviolent activism. Sections are organized into countries: Poland, Hungary, East Germany, Czechoslovakia, the Baltic States (Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania), Serbia, Georgia, and Ukraine. Each section begins with an introductory essay that traces key events in the country’s transformation. Essay lengths vary from 3 to 12 pages, and headings make it very easy for readers to spot important events and issues. After the country essay comes a selection of about 11 or so news articles, arranged chronologically. Accompanying each article is an essay that provides background and outlines key issues. Some articles have been shortened (indicated by ellipses). Bold type for date headings and headlines makes it easy to distinguish news articles from essays. Each country section also includes a “Quick Facts” page (e.g., number of Soviet troops stationed in Hungary in the late 1980s); two or more “Key Player” essays, and an ending bibliography. An index is included as well as two line maps, which clearly illustrate Eastern Europe in 1977 and then in 2009. Black-and-white photographs are kept to a minimum. This is a good introductory resource for anyone researching the breakup of the Soviet Union or the formation of countries in Eastern Europe. Suitable for public and academic libraries. Also available as an e-book. --Stephen Fadel
