13 April -- Lex CEU


The Central European Observer was a journal published in Prague, Czechoslovakia, between 1923 and 1938 that contained a wealth of information about events in Central Europe.  I am borrowing that title to use in a very different context because I have spent a lifetime observing the history and current affairs of Central European states, particularly the Czech and Slovak Republics and their political antecedents.

This site is designed to assist university graduates and undergraduates with improving their assignments, navigating the historical profession, and learning more about Central Europe.  There even are a few items of interest for high school students.  The site also includes some personal information about me and my family, especially when our lives somehow intersect events, people, and places in Central Europe.

Every few days, I update the news and comment section titled "What's New?  How Is the World Treating You?"  Other pages provide student aids, brief articles on academic matters, links, photos, and film clips.  Revisions and additions appear periodically, so be sure to visit often.  I welcome any comments, questions, suggestions, criticisms, corrections, or accolades.  Please send them to me at
