This course will explore the history of Eastern Europe from 1848 to the present, with special focus on the "small nations" and minorities of East Central Europe: the Czechs, Poles, Jews and Ukrainians. Particular attention will be devoted to modernization and nation-building, the social aspects of integration and disintegration, the main features of the Communist system, and the problems of post-Communist cultural and economic reconstruction.
