East Central Europe: A Guide to Basic Publications.
Horecky, Paul L., Ed.
This comprehensive, annotated bibliography records 3,380 basic books, periodicals, and articles on the lands and peoples of Czechoslovakia, East Germany (including the Lusatians and Polabians), Hungary, and Poland. Coverage focuses on political, socioeconomic, intellectual life, and some scientific research activities. Entries are in languages indigenous to these countries with English translations of titles in Slavic languages and Hungarian. English-language publications are frequently cited. Coverage begins with the more recent period of statehood of the various countries and also considers background and general historical development. For each country, the material is structured into eight or nine topics which are then subdivided as suggested by the particularities of each country. The prefatory table of contents, detailed statements at the beginning of major chapters, overviews, and an extensive author-title-subject index are intended to guide the reader in his search. A general overview of the East Central European area includes: (1) history, (2) the nationality question, (3) the economy, (4) the Council for Economic Mutual Assistance, and (5) Slavic culture. The Cyrillic alphabet is transliterated following the Library of Congress style practice. A biographical listing of contributors is included. (Author/RL)
