In the past two decades, states and multilateral organizations have devoted considerable resources toward efforts to stabilize peace and rebuild war-torn societies in places such as Afghanistan, Iraq, Kosovo, and Sierra Leone. Despite these prodigious efforts, there has been relatively little consideration of the critical questions arising from the "end game" of state-building operations. In Exit Strategies and State Building, sixteen leading scholars and practitioners focus on relevant historical and contemporary cases of exit to provide a comprehensive overview of this crucial issue. By examining the major challenges associated with the conclusion of international state-building operations and the requirements for the maintenance of peace in the period following exit, this book provides unique perspective on a critical aspect of military and political intervention. Deftly researched, Exit Strategies and State Building sheds new light on what is not merely an academic issue, but also a pressing global policy concern.

This newly-revised edition of the Historical Atlas of Central Europe enhances its formidable scholarship by extending its reach from the early fifth century through the turbulent 1990s to end in the year 2000. The atlas encompasses the countries of Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Yugoslavia, Macedonia, Albania, Bulgaria, and Greece. Also included are the eastern part of Germany (historic Mecklenburg, Brandenburg, Prussia, Saxony, and Lusatia), Bavaria, Austria, northeastern Italy (historic Venetia), the lands of historic Poland-Lithuania (present-day Lithuania, Belarus, and Ukraine up to the Dnieper River), Moldova and western Turkey. The atlas is basically chronological with eighty-nine full-colour maps and accompanying text. Numerous tables and lists provide related statistical and demographic material. Especially useful is the detailed index, which includes hundreds of variant place names. This revised edition includes twenty new maps and eleven new chapters, most of which deal with those countries that gained (or regained) their independence during the last decade. The Historical Atlas of Central Europe will be invaluable to scholars, diplomats, journalists, students, and general readers who wish to have a fuller understanding of this critical area, with its many peoples, languages, and continued political upheaval.

Finalizada la etapa de la Guerra Fría con la desaparición de la URSS y del llamado "bloque soviético", los conceptos geopolíticos de Europa del Este y de Europa del Oeste, construidos durante medio siglo, en torno al Telón de Acero, han perdido rápidamente su vigencia. En el marco del acelerado proceso de integración continental, la Europa Centrooriental responde a una realidad histórica y cultural anterior, pero la etapa precomunista la devuelve a la realidad, como espacio regional dentro de la Unión Europea.Vertebradas por la larga línea dorsal constituida por los montes de Bohemia y la extensa cadena de los Cárpatos, las cuencas del Vístula y del Danubio agrupan a varios países que, a lo largo de siglos, han compartido muchos rasgos comunes, pero se han visto, a la vez, separados y enfrentados por frecuentes conflictos, trágicamente auspiciados por los abusos de los nacionalismos y las ambiciones de las grandes potencias.
