The magic lantern : the revolution of '89 witnessed in Warsaw, Budapest, Berlin, and Prague

by Timothy Garton Ash

Paper Book, 1993




New York : Vintage Books, 1993


The Magic Lantern is one of those rare books that define a historic moment, written by a brilliant witness who was also a participant in epochal events. Whether covering Poland's first free parliamentary elections--in which Solidarity found itself in the position of trying to limit the scope of its victory--or sitting in at the meetings of an unlikely coalition of bohemian intellectuals and Catholic clerics orchestrating the liberation of Czechoslovakia, Garton Ash writes with enormous sympathy and power.
