CHOICE Review

Deák's latest book is the product of a long and distinguished career that has produced some of the English-speaking world's most important scholarship concerning the history of eastern and central Europe during the 20th century. Over the course of 11 succinct chapters and an epilogue, the author analyzes the morally complex situations faced by the tens of millions of Europeans who lived under German occupation during WW II. While Deák (emer., Columbia) does an effective job of recognizing patterns in response to being conquered by the Third Reich--"collaboration," "opposition," and "passive accommodation"--he is also cognizant of the fact that these categories were not always hard and fast, and that Europeans regularly moved from one to another. Based upon the latest scholarship, the book concludes with an insightful analysis of postwar efforts to come to terms with the choices made in response to German occupation. Summing Up: Recommended. Advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students. --Russel W. Lemmons, Jacksonville State University
