504    Includes bibliographical references 
520    "Lying at the crucible of Central Europe, the Silesian 
       village of Kupferberg suffered the violence of the Thirty 
       Years War, the Napoleonic Wars, the World War I. After 
       Stalin's post-World War II redrawing of Poland's borders, 
       Kupferberg became Miedzianka, a town settled by displaced 
       people from all over Poland and a new center of the 
       Eastern Bloc's uranium-mining industry. Decades of neglect
       and environmental degradation led to the town being 
       declared uninhabitable, and the population was evacuated. 
       Today, it exists only in ruins, with barely a hundred 
       people living on the unstable ground above its collapsing 
       mines. Springer catalogs the lost human elements: the long
       -departed tailor and deceased shopkeeper; the parties, now
       silenced, that used to fill the streets with shouts and 
       laughter, and the once-beautiful cemetery, with 
       gravestones upended by tractors and human bones scattered 
       by dogs. In Miedzianka, Springer sees a microcosm of 
       European history, and a powerful narrative of how the 
       ghosts of the past continue to haunt us in the present"--
