Synopsis :

Europe Since 1945: An Encyclopedia is a comprehensive reference work of some 1,700 entries in two volumes. Its scope includes all of Europe and the successor states to the former Soviet Union. The volumes provide a broad coverage of topics, with an emphasis on politics, governments, organizations, people, and events crucial to an understanding of postwar Europe. Also includes 100 maps and photos.

From Booklist:

The world has changed immensely since 1945, and post-World War II Europe has been at the forefront of incredible seismic shifts. The aim of this encyclopedia is to be a comprehensive survey of the political, economic, social, and cultural changes and trends. Employing 286 scholars from 30 countries, its geographic scope ranges "from Scandinavia in the north to Italy in the south, and from Iceland in the west to Russia in the east."

The 1,700 entries are arranged alphabetically. Volume 1 begins with a subject guide that organizes entry headings under broad subject categories such as "Alliances," "Art," "Cold War," and "Crime." From this array one can see the political emphasis of the encyclopedia: "Political Figures" is the category with the most entries (two-thirds of the content, in fact), broken down by individual countries and then by names. The subject guide allows the reader to scan all of the entries in a few minutes, making the encyclopedia an efficient browsing source. Another useful feature is the "Chronology of Major Political Events Since 1945," which starts with the January 1, 1945, recognition of the provisional government of Poland by the Soviet Union and ends with the March 2000 election of Vladimir Putin as president of Russia.

Encyclopedia entries run from a short paragraph for a biography of Blagoje Adzic, who was a close collaborator with Slobodan Milosevic, to several pages for a major figure, such as Konrad Adenauer. Besides the biographical entries, examples of other topics that are represented include Chernobyl, Ethnic cleansing in Croatia and Bosnia, European Union, Muslims in Europe, Neo-Nazism, Soccer (football) hooliganism, and Tourism. Country articles are divided into separate essays that discuss topics such as the economy and the press. Coverage of some subjects is inconsistent. For example, there are nine country articles that contain sections on cinema, but no discussion of cinema in the entries for Great Britain or France. Entries for geographical entities are accompanied by small maps. Bibliographies are attached to most entries, with non-English sources as prevalent as English-language sources. Some bibliographies include Web sites. The 59-page index is quite detailed.

Europe Since 1945: An Encyclopedia is a resource that will be used in academic and public libraries by students and general readers needing background information on recent European trends, issues, and history. Those seeking more detailed coverage of cultural topics will want to consult various Routledge volumes, such as Encyclopedia of Contemporary Italian Culture [RBB N 1 00] and Encyclopedia of Contemporary Spanish Culture (1999).
