Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Simons, currently the U.S. ambassador to Poland, has a 30-year diplomatic career dealing with East-West relations. During 1989-90 he was diplomat in residence at Brown University; his book is the outgrowth of a course on post-1945 Eastern Europe. He concentrates on Poland, East Germany, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Romania, and Bulgaria and stresses three themes: the peasant character of these societies, their legacy of dependence on outside powers, and nationalism. At some time during the 1970s, he asserts, the last links between the people and their respective governments snapped, and only force held the state together. Under such conditions, the intellectuals developed "anti-politics," political and social activity outside of the formal state apparatus. A competent survey, stressing what happened over why it happened. For subject collections.

The author has been a U.S. diplomat and Professor of History and his enthusiasm and love for history shows in this well written book. If you are interested in gaining a better understanding of developments in Eastern Europe after the Second World War, then you will find this book to be very helpful and informative. The author's style of writing makes for easy reading and gives the reader a good background of this part of the world. I found it to be well worth the reading!
