East Central Europe between the two world wars is a sophisticated political history of East Central Europe in the interwar years. Written by an eminent scholar in the field, it is an original contribution to the literature on the political cultures of Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Yugoslavia, Romania, Bulgaria, Albania, and the Baltic states.


“In scope, depth of analysis, and, not the least, fairness and objectivity, this book has no rivals as far as the area of East Central Europe is concerned. It will certainly become required reading in all area-related courses, and one hopes that it will also win a place for itself on reading lists for courses in modern Europe.” -Slavic Review

“Several outstanding works have appeared in English on East Central Europe...but Rothschild’s book is now the best single volume available on the region as a whole.” -Political Science Quarterly
