"This is an economical and elegant narrative by a distinguished comparative historian of places and times that deserve to be better known."--Eugen Weber, "The Key Reporter""Always interesting . . . a provocative overview of a complex region that is still undergoing change . . . Highly recommended."--B. Osborne, "Choice: Current Reviews For Academic Libraries""A towering work of scholarship wrapped in a fascinating story."--Dan Danbom, "Time Out For Entertainment""For Berend, history is a whole, and when cultural, economic, social, and political trends are taken together, they distinguish central and east Europeans from the rest of Europe. . . . Berend, a first-rate economic historian, treats the often neglected economic dimension with special skill."--"Foreign Affairs"
