Eastern Europe In Revolution
Eastern Europe In Revolution
Edited by Ivo Banac

Less than a year after the collapse of socialism in eastern Europe an unusually bright and creative group of specialists assembled at Yale to explain what had happened. This book is the result. All the countries are covered, including Albania and Yugoslavia. Those who come after and take on the historian's task of reconstructing the whole story, making full use of the distance of time, will find in these essays inspired early conjecture.
