1.Crampton's survey, Twentieth Century Eastern Europe (London: Routledge, rev. edn, 1996) was structured in such a fashion, with a chapter each on all the East European countries for the inter-war period, switching to the regional focus after the communist takeover. His narrative structure reinforced both the notion that these countries were very different and needed to be studied separately during the pre-communist period, and that 1944 was a watershed in terms of national uniqueness, wiping out much of what had been different among these countries until then.
2.The book is a revised edition of an earlier work by East, Roger, Revolutions in Eastern Europe (London: Pinter Publishers, 1992).
