East of Eden is the the fourth book of Carl De Keyzer, after India (1987), Homo Sovieticus (1989) and God Inc. (1992).

The expressive black and white photographs of daily life scenes in Eastern Europe's major cities and provincial towns, are complemented by the thoughts of selected Eastern European writers including: E.M Cioran , H.M Enzensberger,
Eva Hoffman, Ivan Klima, Gyorgy Konrad, Ismail Kadare, Vaclav Havel, Dubravka Ugresic, Czeslaw Milosz.
Some of these texts - excerpted from recent writings - are philosophical and personal views on possibilities and limits of changes to society in general, while others examine more specifically the recent history and the actual situation in Eastern Europe.
