3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Cousin Jack on 19 April 2008
Format: Paperback
Each chapter of this book is a concise overview of one of the countries formerly hemmed in between the Soviet Union and the Iron Curtain (except the DDR). The details covered range from distant history to economic, cultural and military factors affecting that country at the time of writing (about 1990, within a year of the 1989 revolutions). The author's writing style (`sounding' very much like a discursive BBC journalist) is chatty and informative, his wry, balanced and perceptive commentary making this book very readable. And as for his sceptical and worried predictions of 1990 about the `end of history' ... they seem justified so far. Thoroughly recommended for general reading or a quick survey of c. 1989 Eastern Europe.

The Ring of Authenticity 7 Oct. 2000
By Sue Henry - Published on
Format: Paperback
Having traveled to many of the countries about which Misha Glenny wrote just as those countries were in the midst of change and having had the benefit of staying with good friends who are citizens of those countries and visiting many of the social institutions of the countries--that is, having a bit of an "inside view," I had such a strong feeling of the ring of authenticity as I read the Glenny book. In some ways, it was uncanny to read his words and recall that my friends and professional colleagues had described situations in almost the same words. He is a sensitive and gifted writer! This is a book well worth reading for every one who hopes to consider herself or himself informed.
