Ghosts of Europe
Journeys Through Central Europe's Troubled Past and Uncertain FutureDAISY - 2012
In 1989 the Berlin Wall was dismantled, and Communism gave way to democracy. Since that time the former borderlands of the old Hapsburg and Soviet Empires have been trying to invent their own versions of democracy and market-driven economics. But these experiments have led to a widening gap between rich and poor, the worldwide economic crisis has tested Central Europe's determination to live peaceably, and there are many disquieting signs of racial tensions returning. Winner of the 2011 Shaughnessy Cohen Prize for political writing. Some descriptions of violence. 2010.
