This welcome second edition of A History of Eastern Europe provides a thematic historical survey of the formative processes of political, social and economic change which have played paramount roles in shaping the evolution and development of the region.

Subjects covered include:

• Eastern Europe in ancient, medieval and early modern times
• the legacies of Byzantium, the Ottoman Empire and the Habsburg Empire
• the impact of the region's powerful Russian and Germanic neighbours
• rival concepts of 'Central' and 'Eastern' Europe
• the experience and consequences of the two World Wars
• varieties of fascism in Eastern Europe
• the impact of Communism from the 1940s to the 1980s
• post-Communist democratization and marketization
• the eastward enlargement of the EU.

A History of Eastern Europe now includes two new chronologies – one for the Balkans and one for East-Central Europe – and a glossary of key terms and concepts, providing comprehensive coverage of a complex past, from antiquity to the present day.
