Richard Crampton is Professor of Eastern European History at Oxford University and is the author of Atlas of Eastern Europe in the Twentieth Century (Routledge 1995). If, like me, you are no expert on Eastern Europe, then this book is reassuring in that it proves someone out there is. However it really does nothing to help weave a broad picture for the reader or to explain well the context surrrounding the events. I certainly felt less confident about my knowledge of the region after reading it than before.

A very thorough history of Eastern Europe in the 20th century. It is very detailed, however, so much so that it becomes repetitive and dull at times. If you want to learn something from this book you need to focus on the bigger picture, it& easy to get lost is all the names and dates. A very thorough history of Eastern Europe in the 20th century.

If, like me, you are no expert on Eastern Europe, then this book is reassuring in that it proves someone out there is. However it really does nothing to help weave a broad picture for the reader or to explain well the context surrrounding the events. I certainly felt less confident about my knowledge of the region after reading it than before.
There could be more overview and less detail and this book would not have suffered for it.

This volume is the most comprehensive and detailed analysis of the turmoil and disruptions in the culture of eastern Europe. The work is well documented and written with clarity and accuracy.

There aren't many quality books on the contemporary history of Eastern Europe. Crampton's book is one of the nice exceptions. It is one of the best books on the matter with a lot of curious details on all the countries in the region. I personally use this book as the main text of all my university courses on Eastern/Central Europe and the Cold War. The only shortcoming I can think of is the lack of information on the communist concentration camps in Eastern Europe and their victims.

I am not an authority on Eastern Europe; I read this book as a (very successful) undergraduate in social sciences. I enjoyed the thorough, methodically-organized text. Crampton divides the text into time periods or event trends, and examines each country's experience in detail. The organization is this text's strongest point. Its other great asset is the degree of detail. It combines a historian's "big-picture" view of trends with a nearly journalistic (I hope the word doesn't offend!) chronology of political events at crucial moments. This pair of perspectives, together with the fact that headings make it easy to identify sections for quick reference, made this a really good book for me.
Now the downside: all of this detail makes the book terribly long. The prose, particularly in early sections, is unnecessarily verbose and not particularly well-constructed. I am quite comfortable reading academic texts; this one could be better. Teachers using this text should include some sort of geography primer; I think that even if Americans were geographically compotent, we would need help with some of these references to non-political regional names. I do not consider this a weakness, however, and generally endorse this text; my course used several of these chronologies, and this was easily the best. If your students will read 500+ pages of rather obscure text, Crampton will serve you very well.

I have long been interested in finding a thorough yet broad source of eastern European history, and this book finally granted my wishes! Crampton has organized the book beautifully and sensibly into five time periods in the twentieth century, and in each section he devotes attention to individual countries. This book also contains a section on eastern Europe before the twentieth century, maps, and abbreviations of various organizations. Any serious student of eastern European history OR curious novice would benefit from taking a look at this book!

I am an early modern european historian, the 20th century has not been a focus for me, however, Crampton's book has been a wonderful source of information on this time period. Understanding what happened in the 20th century helps those of us who are interested, make sense of the 21st century. Eastern Europe is a complicated area, to understand the nuances of diplomacy, the Austrian-Hungarian empire and how Russis played a part in the formation of WWI is invaluable. Well written, lots of good information and a great springboard for further study.
