This is an excellent reference work that provides information in one single English-language work on persons influential in the East and Central European countries but who were frequently little known in the West and sometimes even in the neighboring countries. In this dictionary the authors tried to minimize evaluations. Nonetheless, the reader will certainly notice our critical attitude toward authoritarian, and particularly totalitarian, regimes.

The authors and editors of this work cherish the rule of law, human rights, and the rights of national minorities, and value consistency of words and deeds.
A massive work of consistently impressive scholarship, Biographical Dictionary of Central and Eastern Europe in the Twentieth Century is a significant and emphatically recommended addition to academic library reference collections for colleges and universities, as well as the library reference shelves of major metropolitan public library systems. However, this biographical dictionary is neither a critical study nor a polemic; what the reader will find here is a referencework.

Drawing on newly accessible archives as well as memoirs and other sources, this biographical dictionary documents the lives of some two thousand
notable figures in twentieth-century Central and Eastern Europe. A unique compendium of information that is not currently available in any other single resource, the dictionary provides concise profiles of the region's most important historical and cultural actors, from Ivo Andric to King Zog.

Those who enjoyed power and prominence as well as those who were suppressed and vilified, those who survived as well as those who disappeared--all are remembered here in their true light. This is a work of recovery and correction of the historical record that will stand the test of time. Coverage includes Albania, Belarus, the Czech and Slovak Republics, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania and Moldova, Ukraine, and the countries that made up Yugoslavia, and such varied individuals as Tomas Masaryk, Imre Nagy, Janusz Korczak, Jaan Kross, Mykhailo Denisenko (Metropolitan Filaret), and Karol Wojtyla (Pope John Paul II).
