Conflict and Chaos in Eastern Europe
The return of Eastern and Central Europe to true independence, following the collapse of Communist rule, has retained an enormous number of historical and cultural issues largely dominant since the disaster of World War II. Conflict and Chaos in Eastern Europe analyzes five of the most important of these issues: the legacy of the Habsburg Empire, the 'cultural faultline' of Bosnia-Hercegovina, the much disputed religion of Macedonia, the tensions between Hungary and Romania over Transylvania, and Poland's unstable Eastern borders. In his previous book, Culture and History in Eastern Europe, Dennis Hupchick created a lucid conceptual framework for understanding developments in Eastern Europe. Here he applies these insights to case-studies that greatly enhance our understanding of this fascinating, highly unstable part of the world.
