"Cutting-edge scholarship on important issues of borderlands and violence that many people--and the educated public as a whole--think about... A compendium of first-rate research and scholarship... truly impressive." Norman M. Naimark, author of Fires of Hatred: Ethnic Cleansing in 20th-Century Europe "It is hard to imagine that anyone in the field of central/eastern Europe will not buy this book. It will also be interesting to anyone working on the First or Second World War, or the history of violence, genocide, Judeocide. It's a big book... that will have a big impact." Alison Kleig Frank, author of Oil Empire: Visions of Prosperity in Austrian GaliciaVom Verlag:
From the Baltic to the Black Sea, four major empires with ethnically and religiously diverse populations encountered each other along often changing and contested borders. Examining this geographically vast, multicultural region through a variety of methodological lenses, this volume offers informed and dispassionate analyses of how the many populations of these borderlands managed to coexist in a previous era and why the areas eventually descended into violence. An understanding of this region will help readers grasp the preconditions of interethnic coexistence and the causes of ethnic violence and war in many of the world's other borderlands both past and present.
