Summary

Most books on European history concentrate on the peoples of Western Europe. By focusing on the central part of Europe, Polish history professor Halecki's work is unique. Examining the political histories of the many nations from Finland to Serbia over the years enables the reader to understand the background and grasp the implications of contemporary events.
