Rosyjska wizja Europy Środkowej: tradycje i dzisiejsza perspektywa
During the 1970-1980s in the framework of Soviet comparative studies in history the regional approach was formed with distinguishing of Central Europe, South-East Europe and Eastern Europe (all these regions were parts of the socialist space then). Such a traditional division dominates so far in the works of Russian scholars, who have normally rather negative attitude to the concept of East-Central Europe, i.e. the expanding of Central Europe at the expense of Eastern Europe. Discussions about European regions and correspondent terminology using geographical, historical, political and civilizational arguments, make it possible to overcome some radical treatments.
