The Soviet Successor States and Eastern Europe. Teachers' Guide. Revised.
Indiana Univ., Bloomington. Russian and East European Inst.
This document is a guide to provide teachers and curriculum consultants with an up to date overview of the histories, cultures, and current issues concerning the region of the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe. It is not intended as an in depth study of the area or people. The guide is divided into two parts. The first discusses the Soviet successor states. The Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) is treated as a separate entity of the Soviet successor states. Several pages on the organization of the CIS precede the Russian section in which Soviet history is discussed. Next each of the successor states are discussed. These are arranged alphabetically and include Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldava, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan. These are followed by a bibliography for Soviet successor states. The second section is Eastern Europe. The countries listed here are Albania, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, and the Slovak Republic. The countries of former Yugoslavia are arranged alphabetically, Bosnia and Hercogovina, Croatia, Macedonia, Slovenia, and Yugoslavia (Serbia and Montenegro), and grouped as South Slaves. A section on Yugoslavia history and South Slav chronology follows. A bibliography for Eastern Europe ends the section. A map precedes the discussion of each country. Each country chapter is individually paginated. The chronologies of each country chapter are taken primarily from the Radio Free Europe and Radio Liberty Research Institute Reports. (DK)
