"The expression of truth is losing its ethical impact and becoming no
more than a historical fact that arouses interest but not enthusiasm.
And the experts are better informed and are able to quote facts more
accurately than the dissidents" wrote Jirina Siklová, a Czech dissident
sociologist, in January 1990. Already a few months earlier she had

CS: East Central Europe 1914-2004

The central event is the Second World War, which brought Nazi and Soviet occupation, destroyed much of the region's diversity, and spread of communism to the west.

CS: Eastern Europe Since 1815

This course will provide an historical overview of the lands, peoples, and states of Eastern Europe from 1815 to the present. Given the great flux in borders, sovereignties, and the ethnic profile of the region during this period, we will have to continually refine or redefine our concept of Eastern Europe, an area that roughly encompasses the band of countries stretching from today's Poland to the Balkans. In keeping with a convention that is not entirely free of political overtones, I will divide the region into two parts, East Central Europe and Southeastern Europe (the Balkans).
