Central Europe

Enemies, Neighbors, Friends

Lonnie Johnson

  • Focuses on the region rather than individual countries, thus looking at a bigger picture
  • Corrects much anti-German bias in other histories of Central Europe
  • Illustrates the origins and uses of "national myths" and shows which are false
  • Most up-to-date and comprehensive survey of the region--closest competition is Wandycz's The Price of Freedom, published by Routledge in 1992 and now quite out of date.
