Austrians today often seem to believe that they have two histories. One is their republican present; the other, the centuries that their forebears spent as part of the multi-ethnic Habsburg Empire. Contemporary Austria is a fixture among Europe's democracies. Yet, it did not achieve this state easily: World War I, the unification with Germany in 1938, and World War II were catastrophes for Austria. In 1995, it became part of the European Union, and its government, culture, and egalitarian economy are far cries from the monarchical and highly stratified society of the old Empire. The second edition of the Historical Dictionary of Austria has been thoroughly updated and greatly expanded. Through its chronology, introductory essay, appendix, bibliography, and hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary entries, greater attention has been given to foreign affairs, economic institutions and policies, social issues, religion, and politics.

Austria's democratic identity exists only after a turbulent history of political, economic and cultural change. The entity's transformation from a monarchical and stratified society under the Habsburg Empire into an egalitarian polity did not come without a struggle.

Historical Dictionary of Kosova presents the region in a broader framework, focusing not only on the many issues that are still worthy of attention, but also on its rich culture and long history. A European country of more than two million people, it is a land of poets and writers, painters and sculptors, scholars and artists. Its features include finely ornamented Ottoman mosques and old Orthodox churches and monasteries, oriental bazaars, battlefields, and breathtaking landscapes. Kosova is also a country with substantial natural resources and a young and optimistic population intent on keeping its homeland free and, at the same time, making it an integral part of Europe. In this dictionary, readers can find more than 370 entries that profile historical and contemporary public figures and political leaders, as well as individuals who have made notable contributions to the arts and scholarship. The entries are complemented by an introductory essay, chronology, and extensive bibliography. A large portion of the material in this dictionary has never appeared in English, enabling readers of all levels to discover new information and making Kosova much more accessible.

The Historical Dictionary of Albania: New Edition provides a comprehensive overview of Albanian history as well as contemporary Albania as it enters the twenty-first century. The dictionary focuses on both the past and the modern European nation struggling to put its formidable Stalinist history behind it. For half a century, Albania was a planet of its own, isolated from the rest of the Earth. Since the fall of the communist regime, the Albanians have been striving, not without difficulty, to find their place among the nations of Europe. The majority of the more than 700 entries in this dictionary comprise historical and contemporary public figures and political leaders, as well as individuals, Albanian and foreign, who have made notable contributions to Albanian studies and culture. The entries cover history and politics, culture and religion, foreign relations, language, economics, and social customs. Additionally, the Historical Dictionary of Albania includes a further dimension - Albanians living outside the country, whether as part of an earlier diaspora or cut off by artificial and sometimes contested borders. The introduction, chronology, and dictionary entries provide readers with the background of Albania and its people. Those who want to learn more about specific aspects can consult the helpful bibliography. Because a large portion of the material in this dictionary has never appeared in English, this book makes the elusive Albanian nation far more accessible.

Czechoslovakia has been at the center of some of the most difficult - and tragic-episodes of modern European history: its sacrifice to Nazi Germany at Munich, the Communist Coup of 1948, and the military crushing of the Prague Spring. It has also enacted momentous change almost magically, as in the peaceful overthrow of communism in 1989 and then the negotiated end to the country in 1992. Czechoslovak history has consequently produced enduring political metaphors for our times, such as the Velvet Revolution and Velvet Divorce. This second edition of the Historical Dictionary of the Czech State has been thoroughly updated and greatly expanded. Featuring a chronology, introductory essay, appendix, bibliography, and hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary entries, this detailed, authoritative reference provides descriptions of the Czechs as a people; the territory they inhabit; their social, cultural, political, and economic developments throughout history; and their interactions with neighbors and the wider world.

Some authors strongly criticized attempts to rebuild a German literary culture in the aftermath of World War II, while others actively committed themselves to 'dealing with the German past.' There are writers in Austria and Switzerland that find other contradictions of contemporary life troubling, while some find them funny or even worth celebrating. German postwar literature has, in the minds of some observers, developed a kind of split personality. In view of the traumatic monstrosities of the previous century that development may seem logical to some. The Historical Dictionary of Postwar German Literature is devoted to modern literature produced in the German language, whether from Germany, Austria, Switzerland or writers using German in other countries. This volume covers an extensive period of time, beginning in 1945 at what was called 'zero hour' for German literature and proceeds into the 21st century, concluding in 2008. This is done through a list of acronyms and abbreviations, a chronology, an introductory essay, a bibliography, and hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary entries on writers, such as Nobel Prize-winners Heinrich Bsll, GYnter Grass, Elias Canetti, Elfriede Jelinek, and W. G. Sebald. There are also entries on individual works, genres, movements, literary styles, and forms.
