Meeting with Anne Applebaum: The eternal periphery – Europe between East and West

08.01.2015

Join PSSI Senior Fellow Jiří Schneider on January 12 at 6 p.m. at the Knihovna Václava Havla, where Mr. Schneider will chair a talk by Pulitzer Prize winning author Anne Applebaum.

The American historian, author and Pulitzer Prize winner will present the Czech editions of two of her most important works.

The book Between East and West is a record of a journey around the borderlands of the West, from Kaliningrad to Odessa, as well as an important attempt to understand the region’s history and cultural diversity. The Iron Curtain: The Crushing of Central Europe, 1944–1956 is an exceptional study of the process by which totalitarian regimes are established.

The books, translated by Petruška Šustrová, will be on sale at the venue.

In cooperation with the Polish Institute in Prague and the Pant civic association. The evening will be conducted in English, with Czech interpretation provided.
