A History of Eastern Europe: Crisis and Change

This welcome second edition of A History of Eastern Europe provides a thematic historical survey of the formative processes of political, social and economic change which have played paramount roles in shaping the evolution and development of the region.

Subjects covered include:

  • Eastern Europe in ancient, medieval and early modern times
  • the legacies of Byzantium, the Ottoman Empire and the Habsburg Empire
  • the impact of the region's powerful Russian and Germanic neighbours
  • rival concepts of 'Central' and 'Eastern' Europe
  • the experience and consequences of the two World Wars
  • varieties of fascism in Eastern Europe
  • the impact of Communism from the 1940s to the 1980s
  • post-Communist democratization and marketization
  • the eastward enlargement of the EU.

A History of Eastern Europe now includes two new chronologies – one for the Balkans and one for East-Central Europe – and a glossary of key terms and concepts, providing comprehensive coverage of a complex past, from antiquity to the present day.
