This report concerns the results reached by the recent "Survey of East Central and Southeast European Studies," sponsored by the American Council of Learned Societies and the Social Science Research Council. Stimulated by the urgent need to understand the current significance and importance of this area and to appreciate its historic role in European civilization, this survey undertook to evaluate past American achievements in the study of the field and to make recommendations for future development. In the evaluation of the serious deficiencies existing in all disciplines in the study of the field, this discussion of the report's findings includes sections describing the purpose and organization of the survey, (2) some basic problems in the field, and (3) recommended steps to be taken in expanding and developing the field.
