Description: The 1990s was an extraordinary decade in Europe. At its beginning, the old order collapsed along with the Berlin Wall. Now, ten years later, most of Western Europe has launched into the unprecedented gamble of monetary union, while Britain stands aside. Germany, peacefully united, is again the most powerful country in Europe. The Central Europeans -- Poles, Czechs, Hungarians -- have made successful transitions from communism to capitalism and have joined NATO. But farther east and south, in the territories of the former Soviet Union and the former Yugoslavia, the continent has descended into a bloody swamp of poverty, corruption, criminality, war, and atrocities.

Timothy Garton Ash chronicles this formative decade through a glittering collection of essays, sketches, and dispatches written as history was being made. He argues that we should not wait until the archives are opened before starting to write the history of our own times. Ranging from Vienna to Saint Petersburg, from Britain to Ruthenia, Garton Ash reflects on how "the single great conflict" of the Cold War has been replaced by many smaller ones. And he asks what part the United States still has to play.
