 About the Book 

Individually and as institutions, says Janice Broun, East European believers have hammered some good out of evil, taught people to find inner freedom within tight political and economic constrictions, and nourished hope in an apparently hopeless situation. In this fact-laden country-by-country survey of Albania, Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia, East Germany, Hungary, Poland, Romania, and Yugoslavia, she sketches each countrys religious history, describes its current religious makeup and the churches relations with the state, and speculates about the future of religion under the influence of Mikhail Gorbachevs reform policies of glasnost and perestroika.
