Author Anna Porter on The Brett Holland Show with Brett Holland

One of the country’s most distinguished writers and publishers Author Anna Porter returns to her roots to explore the consequences of democracy in the former Habsburg lands.In 1989 the Berlin Wall was dismantled. Communism gave way to democracy. Since that time the former borderlands of the long defunct Hapsburg Empire and the more recently dispersed Soviet Empire have been trying to invent their own versions of democracy and market-driven economics. But these experiments have led to a widening gap between rich and poor. The worldwide economic crisis has severely tested Central Europe’s determination to live peaceably, and there are many disquieting signs of old hatreds and racial tensions returning.
