NS4420 Seminar on History & Politics of Central Europe

Central Europe constitutes a coherent and identifiable historical, cultural, and political entity.   Its component states--conventionally including Germany, Austria, Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, and Slovakia--have been competitors and even enemies, as well as allies and neighbors.  The region is distinct from Western or Eastern Europe because of its unique historical and political development.  This seminar examines this region in detail, including the history, politics, and interstate relations within the region in the past and present.
