Synopsis: A reporter for the Christian Science Monitor examines the politics and personalities involved in the collapse of communism in the region and recreates the intellectual and emotional climate that precipitated the revolution

From Library Journal: Echikson was The Christian Science Monitor 's correspondent in Eastern Europe during the mid- to late-1980s; this book is drawn from that reporting. It is an effort to do what so many journalists do--that is, to use personal encounters as a fabric on which to stitch broader social observations. He first provides thumbnail histories (such as "The Landscape"), then deals with social strata and groups who were political actors in 1989-90. In both cases, deft portraits of the named and unnamed energize Echikson's prose. He does much less well when he tries to be a social scientist; recounting personal tales does not suffice for analysis of processes affecting nation-states. While better than Elie Abel's The Shattered Bloc ( LJ 5/1/90) on many accounts, this volume is still no match for a serious study such as James Brown's Surge to Freedom (Duke Univ. Pr. 1988), whose update is expected for the spring of 1991.
