Eastern European history is a difficult subject for Westerners to understand, partly because of the region's political, ethnic, and cultural diversity. "The Palgrave Concise Historical Atlas of Eastern Europe," revised and updated for this edition, addresses this need. In 52 two-color, full-page maps and facing page explanatory text, the atlas illustrates key moments in East European history, from the Middle Ages to the present. Students will regard it as a useful reference, and general readers will value it for its clarity and wealth of information.

Hupchick's descriptions are lucid, and Cox's cartography is clear and well-coordinated with the narrative...a crucial publication on East Central Europe and the Balkans that can serve as a supplemental volume or stand alone as a short text.' - Nationalities Papers
