En el otoño de 1991, en plena desintegración del imperio soviético, Anne Applebaum -ganadora del Premio Pulitzer por Gulag. Historia deloscampos deconcentraciónsoviéticos- emprendió un viaje desde el Báltico hasta el mar Negro, pasando por Lituania, Bielorrusia, Los Cárpatos y Ucrania, con la intención de comprender la nueva configuración de unos territorios en constante conflicto. Por el camino descubrió un amplio abanico de culturas identitarias, religiones y aspiraciones nacionalistas que competían entre sí.

Si bien han transcurrido más de treinta años, las vidas aquí narradas se leen hoy como un registro documental de un mundo que ya no existe. Applebaum, una excelente observadora, teje con gran habilidad la desgarradora historia de una región incomprendida a través de los relatos de personas corrientes, que describen el modo en que los acontecimientos históricos influyen y marcan la vida de la gente.

Ubicadoentre la crónica periodística, la literatura de viajes y el ensayo histórico, Entre Este y Oeste ilumina con brillantez los orígenes de la crisis geopolítica entre Rusia y Europa y nos ofrece algunas claves para entender el alma de estas tierras fronterizas.

La crítica ha dicho:
«En su implacable búsqueda de la comprensión, Anne Applebaum ilumina mundos relegados al olvido de esperanza, sufrimiento y dignidad humana».
The Washington Post

«Sus investigaciones la han llevado a revalorizar de manera radical algunos de los supuestos históricos más básicos de Occidente».
TheEvening Standard

«El carácter receptivo de Applebaum anima a los fronterizos a contarlela infinidad de formas en que la divisiónpolítica ha subyugado sus vidas personales, sus tradiciones culturales y sus lenguas».

The themes of resilience and hope resonated deeply with me. This book taught me valuable life lessons that I'll carry with me for years to come.

The world created in this book was unlike anything I've ever encountered. The author's imagination knows no bounds, and I was completely mesmerized by the fantastical setting.

I loved the powerful messages hidden within the story. The book tackled important social issues and made me ponder the world we live in. It's a must-read for everyone.
