The Balkans: From Constantinople to Communism
Palgrave Macmillan, 21/02/2004 - 468 páginas
The tragedies of Bosnia and Kosovo are often explained away as the unchangeable legacy of "centuries-old hatreds." In this richly detailed, expertly balanced chronicle of the Balkans across fifteen centuries, Dennis Hupchick sets a complicated record straight. Organized around the three great civilizations of the region--Western European, Orthodox Christian, and Muslim--this is a much-needed guide to the political, social, cultural, and religious threads of Balkan history--with a clear, convincing account of the reasons for nationalist violence and terror.

There is alot of information in this book that sadly is about all it has going for it. The text is just dry fact after fact. No quotes, nothing to break up the monotony. Ler crítica na íntegra

Lacking footnotes, it may not be the best history of the Balkans, but it does justice to the long history of empirical push and pull on the region. Ler crítica na íntegra
