A history of the Balkans, 1804-1945
The Balkans have often been a flashpoint of conflict in European history. The recent civil war has torn the country apart and the region faces an uncertain future. This authoritative study provides an account of the history of the whole area from the first major nationalist rising against its Ottoman rulers in 1804 to the aftermath of World War II. Covering the former Yugoslavia, Albania, Greece, Bulgaria and Romania , it provides a Balkan-wide overview as well as histories of specific states and sets the context to the recent conflict.

Pavlowitch combines a detailed grasp of history, encyclopaedic knowledge and a genuine affection for the Balkan countries into this impressive overview, with clear attention for the larger trends, yet enough detail on every country. In every chapter, countries are covered either successively or grouped ('the losers', 'the winners'). This is no light read where you can skip over "filler" paragraphs, as every sentence adds content to the impressive tapestry. You also need to remain concentrated to keep track of the various leaders and regions(and maybe have an atlas at hand if like me you don't quite know how to distinguish the Dobrudja from Bessarabia from Bukovina).
