From the Publisher:

"This collection will endure because it depicts so exactly, and often presciently, the region on the brink of its most dramatic political transformation since the early years of the Cold War."--The Wilson Quarterly

From Library Journal:

As dramatic events continue to unfold in Central and Eastern Europe, this timely collection of articles is to be welcomed. Although all of these essays previously appeared in various U.K. and U.S. publications, including the New York Review of Books and the Times Literary Supplement , they retain the reader's interest, both by the high quality of the writing and also by the nature of the subjects covered. These include the German "question," the Holocaust, repression in Prague, hope in Budapest, and a look at daily life in East Germany. Garton Ash, a polyglot Oxford scholar, serves up clear and thought-provoking analyses of life near and behind the rapidly disappearing Iron Curtain. Highly recommended for most libraries.
