        East Looks West | The Power of Place

        This half hour video program features two case studies set in Europe: Berlin: United We Stand and Poland: Diffusion of Democracy. This first case study features a French geographer whose work involves a reconnaissance of districts in the former East and West Berlin. Her research helps address questions about how and in what ways the dismantling of the Berlin Wall may lead to the integration of urban areas that formerly were spatially distinct. Poland: Diffusion of Democracy presents the difficulties facing Poland in its transition from communism to capitalism. This second case study shows how, under the new system, Poles are learning the nuances of discourse, compromise, and civic engagement.
