About this book

Provides an unrivalled range of in-depth studies of issues central to the development of Eastern and Western Europe, to the major contrasts which still exist between them and to the problems facing the effective reintegration of this long-divided region.

The New Europe is a well written work by an impressive group of scholars who present the results of their solid research. (The Professional Geographer, May 2001)
