Bibliography Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary The fall of the Berlin Wall sent shock waves around the world. Now, more than two decades after the Wall's collapse, this book looks at the world in the aftermath of this momentous event. The book includes a chronological narrative of this tumultuous period. This is followed by chapters that reinterpret the meaning of 1989 in the context of world history in the late twentieth and early twenty-first century and explore such questions as why communism failed in Europe, why China took a different route following the turmoil of Tiananmen Square, and why the peace of 1989 might well prove illusory.
