The Balkans: From Constantinople to Communism
Dennis P. Hupchick
| Price: $ 19.95
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.
Dennis P. Hupchick teaches history at Wilkes University, Pennsylvania, where he also directs the East European and Russian Studies Program. He is co-author of The Palgrave Concise Historical Atlas of the Balkans and The Palgrave Concise Historical Atlas of Eastern Europe, among many other books.
