  • rival concepts of 'Central' and 'Eastern' Europe
  • the experience and consequences of the two World Wars
  • varieties of fascism in Eastern Europe
  • the impact of Communism from the 1940s to the 1980s

  • the eastward enlargement of the EU.

A History of Eastern Europe now includes two new chronologies one for the Balkans and one for East-Central Europe and a glossary of key terms and concepts, providing comprehensive coverage of a complex past, from antiquity to the present day.
