This pioneering and award-winning study provides the world with the first coherent narrative of Eastern European contributions to the modern art movement. Analyzing an enormous range of works, from art centers such as Prague, Warsaw and Budapest, (many published here for the first time), S.A. Mansbach shows that any understanding of Modernism is essentially incomplete without the full consideration of vital Eastern European creative output. He argues that Cubism, Expressionism and Constructivism, along with other great modernist styles, were merged with deeply rooted, Eastern European visual traditions. The art that emerged was vital modernist art that expressed the most pressing concerns of the day, political as well as aesthetic. Mansbach examines the critical reaction of the contemporary artistic culture and political state. A major groundbreaking interpretation of Modernism, Modern Art in Eastern Europe completes any full assessment of twentieth-century art, as well as its history. Modern Art in Eastern Europe is the recipient of the 1997 C.I.N.O.A. Prize, awarded by La Confédération Internationale de Négociants en Oeuvres d'Art. The prize is awarded to defray the costs of publication in order to encourage publishers to produce maunscripts of particular merit and the works of younger art historians.

Eastern Europe since 1939 is a detailed exploration of the region's history from the outbreak of the Second World War until now. Focusing on social history, the book examines life under the socialist dictatorships which dominated the region and how the legacy of these regimes has and, in some cases, has not shaped Eastern European societies in more recent times. The book takes a comparative approach in its analysis of key topics, such as the legacy of the Second World War, Stalinism, the 1989 revolutions and the post-socialist experience. It then masterfully places the turbulent political events in a wider social context so significant social subjects like gender, class, minorities, popular religion, culture and leisure can be discussed in depth. This updated and expanded second edition includes: * A brand new chapter covering the period from 2000 to the present day * More local case studies, biographies, sketches of individuals and detail on individual countries * Historiographical updates throughout, as well as new passages and chapter subheadings for easier navigation * 30 images, several maps and a glossary Of immense value to students and scholars alike, this is an essential text for anyone wanting to understand the human history of Eastern Europe in the last 70 years.
