Praise

Praise for Between East and West and Anne Applebaum

“In her relentless quest for understanding, Applebaum shines light into forgotten worlds of human hope, suffering and dignity.” —The Washington Post

“The interleaved surveys of the region’s history [are] sweeping and elegantly-written.” —The Independent (UK)
 
“Applebaum’s receptiveness encourages borderlanders to tell her the myriad of ways that political partitioning has subjugated their personal lives, cultural traditions and languages.” —Publishers Weekly 

“Achieves both specificity and readability.” —The New York Times
 
“Ms. Applebaum offers us windows into the lives of the men and sometimes women who constructed the police states of Eastern Europe. She gives us a glimpse of those who resisted. But she also gives us a harrowing portrait of the rest—the majority of Eastern Europe’s population, who, having been caught up in the continent’s conflicts time and time again, now found themselves pawns in a global one.” —The Wall Street Journal
 
“Applebaum wants to give flesh to a concept.” —New Yorker 
 
“She is a terrific writer, rare among regional experts. . . . Applebaum possesses an overarching vision of what occurred in Eastern Europe.” —Christian Science Monitor
 
“Her researches have led her radically to reappraise some of the most basic historical assumptions made in the West.” —Evening Standard (UK)
 
“Applebaum [has the] ability to take a dense and complex subject, replete with communist acronyms and impenetrable jargon, and make it not only informative but enjoyable—and even occasionally witty.” —The Telegraph (UK)
