This wise discussion of post-revolutionary Poland, Hungary and Czechoslovakia-east-central Europe's "triangle"-calls it a "grey zone," distinguished by its relatively brighter reform prospects but confronting instability to its south and the ripple effect of breakup in the former Soviet Union to its east. No neat resolution to its security dilemma will come soon; western Europe must first reach agreement on an institutional framework for its security and that, in turn, must await an outcome to the crisis in the former Soviet Union.
