"What's New?  How Is the World Treating You?"

These pages contain news and commentary about Central Europe, Balkans, Eastern Europe, and occasionally Eurasia, Europe, and the European Union.  There also are a few entries about the historical profession, education, and other items of interest.  Updates occur every few days, but the vicissitudes of academic life and family responsibilities may cause some delays.

Without a full-time staff of researchers, it is impossible to claim that these entries constitute a complete summary of events.  They are selective news items, based on information from wire services, media reports, and official statements.  Some appear only with the intent of pointing the reader in the direction of informative articles, while others include commentary I have drawn from my experience as a historian and observer of European affairs.
