 Informat.io on Region
Regions are conceptual constructs and, thus, may vary among cultures and individuals.
The word "region" is taken from the Latin regio, and a number of countries have borrowed the term as the formal name for a type of subnational entity (eg, the región, used in Chile).
Such a distinction is often made on the basis of a historical, political, or cultural cohesiveness that separates the region from its neighbours.

 Central Europe Review - Little Czechs, Big Europe   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-27)
Ethnic nationalism in the region is the ideological underpinning of the struggle against externally imposed rule [3], but it is a questionable way toward democracy, civic society and European integration.
Whereas Slovak identity was, historically, truly new (Slovaks did not have an experience of their own statehood as Czechs had had), it was not problematic for the majority of Czechs to define their identity, which had been synonymous with the Czechoslovak one for 67 years.
Historically, the Czechs are construed as a numerically small nation in Central Europe, "itself seen as a traditional cross-roads of the political, religious and cultural movements of the Continent."[28] The Czech lands lie between the East and the West, between Eastern emotionality and Western rationality, between Germanic and Slavonic culture.

 H-Soz-u-Kult / Termine / CFP: Historical Revisionism in Central Europe after 1989
In broader sense, however, the historical revisionism in the realms of modern and recent history has galvanized political and historical debates both within respective national communities as well at the international stage on virtually all continents.
The region of Central Europe with its Nazi, fascist and communist past not only does not stay aloof, but in many ways is in the center of the debate.
In this context it is the aim of the Prague´s workshop to explore the scale, depth, and meaning of the historical revisionism in the national and regional histories as well as to reconsider the value of the term itself.

 Florida Home: Modern Living, 1945-1965   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-27)
Porches for living and sleeping, walled patios, terraces, balconies, habitable roof decks, loggias, verandas and exterior stairways were all elements characteristic of the region's earlier architectural styles: the traditional wood vernacular, Mediterranean Revival and the "Art Deco" modern of the 1930s.
Imported from Europe, the 1930s "International Style" house-made of glass, white walls and flat roofs-was never popular in the U.S., although a significant number were built in Miami Beach.
With the development of cheaper central air-conditioning during the 1960s, however, the embrace of South Florida's tropical environment declined in favor of the sealed box which, whatever its style, continues to dominate residential architecture at the beginning of the twenty-first century.

 Ten Untaught Lessons about Central Europe--Charles Ingrao
By contrast, the rest of Europe was composed of massive political units like Poland and the Habsburg, Russian, and Ottoman empires that remained much less highly structured because their relative security and greater expanse made it difficult for their rulers to justify and carry out political reform.
Significantly, the central governments of western Europe never compelled their subjects to learn the official state language; rather, the literate elements of each province simply established a pattern of voluntarily acquiring what became a key prerequisite for upward mobility and higher social status.
Since 1919 the nation states of Central Europe have engaged in the kind of mythmaking that is common to all new nations attempting to legitimize their existence.

 Old Sins Industrial Metabolism, Heavy Metal Pollution, and Environmental Transition in Central Europe
Historical studies of heavy metal (cadmium, lead and zinc) pollution flows are used for illustration of how spatial patterns of emissions and deposition have changed over time, and how heavy metals may accumulate in the soils posing a potential risk to agricultural food production.
Studies of the social, economic and political development in the two regions - in combination with pollution flows and scenario studies - form the basis for a more general analysis of the problems related to the future development of the environment in Central Europe.
This book is ideal for researchers, students or the general public interested in enhancing their understanding of environmental development in Central Europe and of the unique geographic considerations of allocating resources to solve environmental problems in the region.

 The Historical Society, Boston University
In the progression toward nationalist political movements, medievalists were in the forefront of the so-called “awakened” intellectuals who “recovered” the history, language, and culture of their people by showing continuities between the language of ancient texts, the deeds of ancient kings and warriors, and the struggling peoples of the present.
These are just four of the many historical examples that demonstrate the force and centrality of nationalism; none of them has been persuasively analyzed, accounted for, or even addressed by the most influential works on nationalism published since the 1960s.
