"If one considers the book as an entangled narrative fabric ..., it transforms into the forum set forth by the editors: to meet and to merge, to enter into a critical dialogue, and to combine many perspectives and disciplines into one book. As a whole, Watersheds goes beyond national perspectives and disciplines. It is more unifying than separating, more inclusive than exclusive. This book not only gives a more transnational direction to this interdisciplinary field of study, but it also opens new ways of looking at a range of authors and works that are not included. ... After the Soviet Union dissolved and the central European states were incorporated into the European Union, the tension between inclusion and exclusion perhaps seemed to be resolved for a brief moment; East and West seemed to be closer to each other. But after multiple terrorist attacks, the refugee crisis, the Brexit vote, and recent elections, the notion of Danubia possesses an even stronger resonance, which suggests a tolerance of difference in a time when it appears that many new borders are dividing Europe. This emerging atmosphere of exclusion makes Watersheds an important contribution to scholarship of the Danube; it is a valuable book for everyone who can image a world without borders to read." --Christiane Fischer, Rutgers University, German Studies Review Vol. 41 No. 3--Christiane Fischer "German Studies Review "
