A History of Eastern Europe: Crisis and Change
Routledge, 1998 - 685 Seiten
A History of Eastern Europe: Crisis and Change is a wide-ranging single volume history of the "lands between", the lands which have lain between Germany, Italy, and the Tsarist and Soviet empires.
Bideleux and Jeffries examine the problems that have bedevilled this troubled region during its imperial past, the interwar period, under fascism, under communism, and since 1989. While mainly focusing on the modern era and on the effects of ethnic nationalism, fascism and communism, the book also offers original, striking and revisionist coverage of:
* ancient and medieval times
Providing a thematic historical survey and analysis of the formative processes of change which have played the paramount roles in shaping the development of the region, A History of Eastern Europe itself will play a paramount role in the studies of European historians.

This is a big book – 720 pages of tight type - covering all of Central and Eastern Europe from the Roman times to the present. It’s not a satisfying book. Most of the book is not original with the authors presenting the views of a leading historian on the particular country or region and adding a few comments of their own. Despite the time span only a sparse few pages are devoted to the times before the Ottoman period as the authors point to the lack of primary sources on the times and some coverage of it in the 1st edition. Given the wide coverage of the work only major themes of the countries are covered. But there are some good sections. The description of the Ottoman system was excellent and very in-depth, portraying a sophisticated culture that maintained the ruling powers for centuries, adapting the earlier Byzantine structure and surprisingly allowing a degree of freedom for the component peoples, provided they paid due respect to the Ottoman’s and Islam primary position. The religious-based millet system was quite different to the basis of social life elsewhere in Europe and was a major factor in preventing a home-grown nation-state concept of developing. After the defeat at Vienna the crusading zeal was replaced with economic exploitation, and combined with the growing Enlightenment in the rest of Europe, spurred resentment to the Ottomans which laid the groundwork for new political alignments. The Austro-Hungarian Empire was re-analyzed in terms of its multi-ethic fabric in a way I had not encountered before. It showed the Hapsburgs as consummate political masters to construct a singular state system from so many disparate elements that were evolving in so many different directions. Finally the inter-war period was given an excellent treatment showing how the western-centric Versailles Treaty ensured that Central Europe would become Germany’s economic sphere of interest that would allow it to return to its former economic and political strength in a very short time. It also highlighted how the early nationalist movements in Central Europe, deprived of supportive relations with the major Western European nations, would in general become more totalitarian than democratic.

Despite its occasional and sometimes ridiculous anachronisms (ie likening 15th century Czech Taborites to modern Iran), this book is extraordinary for its scale and scope. It covers wide range of ... Vollständige Rezension lesen
