Description
(Winner of the 2010 Shaughnessy Cohen Prize for Political Writing) Two decades after the collapse of the Soviet Union, Canadian publisher, mystery writer, and historian Anna Porter traveled to Central Europe to observe how democracy and capitalism have taken root since the collapse of the Iron Curtain. She finds that, to varying degrees, disturbing signs of old attitudes have returned in Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Hungary. Porter, whose family fled Hungary after the failed 1956 revolution, questions the region's ability to reform its elites, settle ancient rivalries, and control the rise of racial tensions and the emergence of fascist parties.
