Central Europe | [Ralph Racio]

Central Europe

Central Europe's ancient civilizations have long been dominated by empires: The Roman Empire; the Habsburg Empire, based in Austria; and more recently, the Soviet Communists. But the decline of communism in the late twentieth century has unleashed old resentments, rivalries, and ambitions that have caused yet more war in this troubled region.

Publisher's Summary

Central Europe's ancient civilizations have long been dominated by empires: The Roman Empire; the Habsburg Empire, based in Austria; and more recently, the Soviet Communists. But the decline of communism in the late 20th century has unleashed old resentments, rivalries, and ambitions that have caused yet more war in this troubled region.

The World's Political Hot Spots series explains the basis of conflicts in some of the world's most politically sensitive areas. Many of these regions are in today's headlines, and tensions recently have become violent in virtually all of them. Each presentation covers up to 10 centuries of background, revealing how and why today's problems occur.

    "Amazing"

    very informative and well narrated, the tone, the voices are great, never made me bored or feeling sleepy, I loved the imitation of the native accents throughout the audio book, this book means a lot to me as part of my family are scattered on that region, I recommend this book if you want to learn about the region and its people, and if you want to learn from history for the future as history repeating itself. Thump up for everybody who worked on this audio book.
