Includes features on November 1989 and the fall of the Berlin Wall
Military interventions since the end of the Cold War

This issue of the British Academy Review displays a wide range of scholarship supported by the British Academy. The opening articles illustrate the stronger role that the British Academy is playing in public debates and policy-making – through its Forums, through the research it funds, and now through its recently launched Policy Centre. Then there are articles offering different perceptions of late 20th-century history – including the dramatic events that changed Eastern Europe twenty years ago. The remaining articles reflect the work that the Academy supports in the study of different aspects of culture, whether of another time and place, or closer to home.
