Welcome to a Conversation on International Affairs. I'm Harry Kreisler of the Institute of International Studies. Our guest today is Timothy Garton Ash, who is a Fellow of St. Antony's College, Oxford. Garton Ash is the 1996 Elberg Lecturer at Berkeley. Throughout the 1980s he reported and analyzed the emancipation of Central Europe from communism in contributions to the New York Review of Books and other journals. His publications include The Polish Revolution: Solidarity; The Uses of Adversity: Essays on the Fate of Central Europe; The Magic Lantern: The Revolution of '89 witnessed in Warsaw, Budapest, Berlin, and Prague; and most recently, In Europe's Name: Germany and the Divided Continent.
