Ferenc Laczo co-edits volume ‘The Legacy of Division’

Ferenc Laczo has co-edited, with Luka Lisjak Gabrijelcic, the volume ‘The Legacy of Division. East and West after 1989‘ (Budapest: CEU Press-Eurozine).

The volume includes contributions from Aleida Assmann, Ivan Krastev, Peter Pomerantsev, Philipp Ther and Jan Zielonka, among many others. Parts of it have already been translated into six further languages.

The volume examines the legacy of the East–West divide since the implosion of the communist regimes in eastern Europe in 1989. In a series of original essays, authors from the fields of European and global history, politics and culture address questions fundamental to our understanding of Europe today: How have perceptions and misperceptions between the two halves of the continent changed over the last three decades? Can one speak of a new East-West divide? If so, what characterizes it and why has it re-emerged? Conversely, how have the hopes expressed in ’89 of reunifying Europe been fulfilled?

The volume includes contributions from Aleida Assmann, Ivan Krastev, Peter Pomerantsev, Philipp Ther and Jan Zielonka, among many others. Parts of it have already appeared in Arabic, German, Hungarian, Italian, Lithuanian and Slovene translation.

The contents of the book were first presented on 2 November during the annual meeting of European cultural journals in Berlin. The book will be launched in Maastricht on 26 March 2020.
