Description - The End of the Outer Empire by Alex Pravda
Alex Pravda and his contributors examine two processes - the decline of the internal empire and the disintegration of the external one - to show how the current structural problems faced by Eastern Europe developed. Major topics examined in depth include: the dramatic changes in relations between the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe since the mid-1980s; the evolution of Soviet policy towards the region and Gorbachev's practice of leadership in terms of how they affected Soviet strategy; the events leading to the demise of the Warsaw Pact and the Council of Mutual Economic Assistance. There are also detailed chapters covering developments in bilateral relations between the Soviet Union and Poland, Hungary, German Democratic Republic, Czechoslovakia and Romania.
