Eastern Europe in the Sixties

By Stephen Fischer-Galati | Go to book overview
Save to active project


Eastern Europe in the Sixties is a pioneer effort. It is the first collaborative attempt to present and interpret the principal problems and developments in contemporary Eastern Europe on an "area" basis. This comprehensive approach is deemed preferable to the conventional "country-by-country" method, even at the risk of possible minor distortions creeping into the broader generalizations. It has the advantage of presenting an integrated picture of East European affairs in the proper perspective essential for understanding the workings of the Soviet bloc, Yugoslavia, and Albania.

The editor is most grateful to the authors of the several chapters for the high competence they brought to their tasks, for their cooperation and suggestions, and for confining themselves to the specific topics envisaged in our necessarily tightly drawn outline. He is also indebted to Dr. Joseph S. Roucek and Mr. Joseph Babicki for information on topics related to social and intellectual change and to Mr. Frederick A. Praeger and his associates for making our book possible. Indeed, without the publisher's willingness to underwrite projects on this area, the general knowledge of Eastern Europe would be even more meager than it is at this time.
