Contributions to this volume are grouped around three themes: the interaction of domestic and foreign policies, the place of the new specialist elites in East European society and politics, and new factors in Eastern Europe's place in the wider world. Most of the papers are confined to one country and limited by the particular research interests and methods of the individual authors, but three brief general chapters provide some breadth. The book as a whole is noteworthy as illustrating both the fact of continuing change in Eastern Europe and the ability of Western scholars to monitor and analyze it.
