➢ A much-needed 2nd edition of the critically acclaimed, first comprehensive, English-language informative AND highly entertaining overview of a region of vital importance to the European--and global--economy and that represents the ancestry of tens of millions of North Americans and others throughout the world ➢ With Russian-US relations and the Ukraine conflict so much in focus, especially under the current US presidential administration, there will likely be tie-in news events in spring 2019 to coincide with publication. ➢ VIP foreword possible ➢ Appr. 20% new content, including a major new section on the postcommunist era and an expanded appendix (e.g. country-by-country tips for travelers and businesspeople) ➢ The 1st edition has seen sales of some 6,000 print copies at $24.95 since 2013 and has been widely⎯and very well⎯reviewed (39 customer reviews at Amazon, 4.5 stars) ➢ The first book to demystify a region whose history has helped shape our own, but that to date has been addressed comprehensively only by scholarly works ➢ Ideal for students, businesspeople, travelers, and history buffs ➢ The author combines extensive experience in the region, a degree in history from a leading university, and years as an analyst in the corporate world--and vouched for by scholars. Events will include not only bookstores and libraries but also colleges and companies that do business in the corporate world. ➢ Given the author’s business background, if speaking engagements can be made at companies that do business in Eastern Europe, there may be an opportunity for group sales ➢ With the 2nd edition, a push for academic course adoptions⎯for intro courses to the region, esp. on the undergrad level and for early grad students⎯will be in order
