While discussions of Eastern Europe have previously been confined to dry, scholarly works, Tomek E. Jankowski's Eastern Europe! is an entertaining account of this vital but oft-forgotten region. The book sums up modern linguistic, geographic and religious contours of Eastern Europe, providing a general background of the region's demographics. It also delves into the region's history, from the earliest origins of Europe up to the end of the Cold War and makes sense of geographical name references and changes throughout the years.

Eastern European history is something about which I know little, and I'm anxious to remedy that. However, this tome was a bit of a slog. The author is a Polish-American market analyst rather than a historian or a writer. While each chapter is enlivened with boxes entitled "Useless Trivia", Jankowski's lack of expertise and writing skill are a problem for most of the book. While I wouldn't say it's a waste of time, it didn't come alive for me until we reached the twentieth century.
