Abstract:

"This timely political monograph on Central Europe analyzes the past and present of a region of smaller nations within the framework of Great Power politics. Lucid and scholarly, it should also appeal to the general reader who is not normally attracted by a work of this nature."--BOOK JACKET. "The main purpose of the book is to demonstrate how peace efforts in twentieth century Central Europe have been frustrated by nationalist rivalries, with catastrophic consequences far beyond the region's geographic and historical boundaries. The cause of failure, the author argues, is the nation-state order created after World War I and restored after World War II."--BOOK JACKET. "His interpretation centers on the need for a democratic federalist alternative. Such solutions have been discussed for almost two centuries but never realized. Thus, on the eve of the twenty-first century, Central Europe remains a region of conflict threatening world peace."--BOOK JACKET. "Published in London, Stephen Borsody's The Triumph of Tyranny was the precursor of this political essay. Twice reissued in the United States under its American title, The Tragedy of Central Europe, it was acclaimed by experts as a "classic." This updated and expanded edition offers a new view of Central Europe in the post-cold war era. What remains unchanged is the federalist philosophy of interpretation, the hallmark of the author's work."--BOOK JACKET.
