Thirteen essays by scholars from seven countries discuss the political use and abuse of history in the recent decades with particular focus on Central and Eastern Europe (Hungary, Poland, Estonia, Moldova, Ukraine, Russia as case studies). The volume also includes articles on Germany, Japan and Turkey providing a valuable comparative dimension. The main focus is on new conditions of political utilization of history in a postcommunist context characterized by lack of censorship and political pluralism. The phenomenon of history politics became extremely visible in Central and Eastern Europe in the past decade, and remains central for political agenda in many countries of the regions. Each essay is a case study contributing to the knowledge about collective memory and political use of history, and each offers a new theoretical twist. The studies look at actors (from political parties to individual historians), institutions (museums, institutes of national remembrance, special political commissions),methods, political rationale and motivations behind this phenomenon.
