Balkans: From Constantinople to Communism
Dennis P. Hupchick
| Price: $ 35
The tragedies in 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 15 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 inclusive 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.
