A publishing pioneer and former emigre's journey into the heart of Europe and the fragile state of democracy after the fall of CommunismMore than twenty years ago, the nations of central Europe rushed to reinvent themselves as capitalist societies. Anna Porter traveled to the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, and Slovakia to interview the winners and the losers in this grand European transformation to ask: Is democracy working? Her probing encounters run the gamut from Vaclav Havel, Lech Walesa and Radek Sikorski; to poor farmers betrayed by the new economy; to the wealthiest man in Hungary, a former Communist who capitalized on hurried privatizations; to the generation of twenty-somethings armed with little or no perspective on the grim specter of a Communist past.Penetrating and powerfully observed,The Ghosts of Europeilluminates themes of tyranny, nationalism, racism and denial in nations with a tumultuous history and an uncertain future.

Anna Porter is the author of many books, including The Ghosts of Europe , winner of the Shaughnessey Cohen Prize for Political Writing, Kasztner's Train , winner of the Nereus Writers' Trust Non-Fiction Award as well as the Jewish Book Award for Non-Fiction, and The Storyteller , the winner of the 2001 Canadian Authors Association/Birks Family Foundation Award for Biography. She is an Officer of the Order of Canada and awarded the Order of Ontario. Anna lives in Toronto.
