Nothing Quiet on the Eastern Front—Post-Communist Europe and the New Historical Era


The collapse of communism in Europe in 1989 and the end of the Cold War promised a new era for Eastern Europe. An examination of what has happened to that promise and the current situation in Eastern Europe. Reasons for the current situation: the legacy of communism, the ignorance about the prerequisites of a well-functioning developed society, unrealistic expectations, and more. Possible consequences of the disillusionment with the new age of democracy and the market economy. Historical roots of the situation, with examples from recent history. Promising and well functioning present-day models. What minorities want and how it may be facilitated. An all-European code of conduct. Conferences on the human dimension. Goals of government.
