Central Europe remains a region of ongoing change and continuing significance in the contemporary world. This third, fully revised edition of the Historical Atlas of Central Europe takes into consideration recent changes in the region. The 120 full-colour maps, each accompanied by an explanatory text, provide a concise visual survey of political, economic, demographic, cultural, and religious developments from the fall of the Roman Empire in the early fifth century to the present. No less than 19 countries are the subject of this atlas. In terms of today's borders, those countries include Lithuania, Poland, and Belarus in the north; the Czech Republic, Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Hungary, and Slovakia in the Danubian Basin; and Serbia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Montenegro, Romania, Moldova, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Albania, and Greece in the Balkans. Much attention is also given to areas immediately adjacent to the central European core: historic Prussia, Venetia, western Anatolia, and Ukraine west of the Dnieper River. Embedded in the text are 48 updated administrative and statistical tables. The value of the Historical Atlas of Central Europe as an authoritative reference tool is further enhanced by an extensive bibliography and a gazetteer of place names - in up to 29 language variants - that appear on the maps and in the text. The Historical Atlas of Central Europe is an invaluable resource for scholars, students, journalists, and general readers who wish to have a fuller understanding of this critical area, with its many peoples, languages, and continued political upheaval.

"There is nothing comparable to this book in any language and its usefulness to the profession and interested public is beyond any doubt. The work is destined to exert considerable and lasting influence on generations of scholars, experts, diplomats, and politicians." -- George Barany * University of Denver * "The Historical Atlas of Central Europe is a marvellous work that deserves to be in every map library, history department, researcher's office, or even one's coffee table. Considering the current events transpiring in this region of Europe, this atlas may well become one of the most used in any collection or classroom." -- James Boxall * Association of Canadian Map Libraries and Archives Bulletin * "A Superb reference tool for those interested in the region and as essential aid for those involved in teaching the history of East Central Europe." * Journal of Refugee Studie * "A valuable reference work for historians of Europe and a treasure house for the merely curious" * Business Library Review * "The Historical Atlas of Central Europe is a mammoth project, focusing on the history of a region underrepresented by Western historians for too long, while addressing a large public with excellent maps and coherent accompanying texts." -- Nikolaus Schobesberger * Austrian History Yearbook * "Although the Historical Atlas of Central Europe is attractive enough to grace a coffee table it will mainly be used for teaching in higher education. It is admirably suited for that purpose. The individual chapters stand alone very well, and will make fine background readings for seminars on many aspects of Central Europe, particularly its modern history. Anyone teaching on these subjects will find this volume to be an invaluable resource." -- Francis King, University of East Anglia * <em>European History Quarterly</em> *
