0 Reviews
Encompassing the period from the Neolithic era to the present, this book studies the peoples, societies, and cultures of the area situated between the Adriatic Sea in the west and the Black Sea in the east, between the Alpine region and Danube basin in the north and the Aegean Sea in the south. This is not a conventional history of the Balkans; rather, drawing upon archaeology, anthropology, economics, psychology, and linguistics as well as history, the author has attempted a total history that integrates many areas of the Balkan experience.
