Summary

Central Europe or alternatively Middle Europe is a region of the European continent lying between the variously defined areas of Eastern and Western Europe. The term and widespread interest in the region itself came back after the Cold War by the end of the Cold War, which had divided Europe politically into East and West, splitting Central Europe in half.

Details

The concept of Central Europe, and that of a common cultural identity, is somewhat elusive.

However, scholars assert that a distinct "Central European culture, as controversial and debated the notion may be, exists". It is based on "similarities emanating from historical, social and cultural characteristics", and it is identified as having been "one of the world's richest sources of creative talent" between the 17th and 20th centuries. Cross Currents: A Yearbook of Central European Culture characterizes Central Europe "as an abandoned West or a place where East and West collide". Germany's Constant Committee for Geographical Names defines Central Europe both as a distinct cultural area and a political region. George Schöpflin and others argue that Central Europe is defined by being "a part of Western Christianity",History of the literary cultures of East-Central Europe: junctures and disjunctures in the 19th and 20th centuries, Volume 2 [1]2010 Human Development IndexCopyright: Attribute—Share Alike
