Not a Complete History, but Good 22 May 2014
By JackyBabyT - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The brothers Swain do a great job trying to give you ALL of Eastern Europe since 1945, which is a difficult task.

While they manage quite well to give an overview of political and economic history throughout Eastern Europe (Turkey area included), they do little else.

If you are interested in cultural or societal shifts this book is of little value, but if you are looking for economic or political changes it is a gold mine of information I highly recommend.
