    1. I knew very little about Albania before I read this book I learned quite a bit I wish the book didn t end in 1999, the political situation was very volatile and it left me hanging I googled recent Albanian history to keep me up to date for example, I found out Berisha came back to power and Albania has now joined NATO.The statement at the beginning of the book left me puzzled The author stated that since the 1940 s archaeological expeditions focused on showing a direct link between the Illyrian [...]


    2. This does an okay job of giving a broad explanation of the Albanian people and culture A reader will definitely come away with a strong sense of how important this country is to the history of the Balkans I feel that a reader will want to explore detailed texts on the origin of this country and the complex politics involved in this region.


    3. I was happy with this book, and felt it was written objectively Gives a good review of the history and is good for anyone who wants a brief history of Albania The writing style is clear and keeps one s attention.


    4. Exhaustive survey of Albanian history from the Illyrian epoch up through the mid 1990s, following the dissolution of Jugoslavia and the USSR Excellent work by Dr Vickers in condensing such a vast body of research and span of time into a very approachable 230 pages When one finishes this book now in 2017 one cannot help but long for a followup covering these intervening 20 years, which included yet anarchy, chaos, and civil unrest, those seemingly permanent characteristics of Albanian society Ve [...]


    5. Albania is one of those countries that have a colourful history and is a place that was a bit of an anomaly to me I know that it is publicly perceived as a poor backwater of Eastern Europe but I wanted to read this well written book to glean further information After the fall of the Ottomans in the Balkans, Albania came into being as an independent entity This came out of the back of several Balkan conflicts The Albanians are one of the rainbow of ethnic tribes in the region, with their own lang [...]


    6. I ve always had a fond place in my heart for Albania and it s one of my most desired travel destinations and yes, yes, I know it is an unsafe shithole where everyone is armed to the teeth and will handily gnaw off your genitals as a table blessing And yes, yes even Albanians say that their country is nj top i zi i qelb i cili sht paraqitur n zorr n e trash t nj xhuxh lebrozit , but you have to hand it to a country that made into the mid 90s with barely a paved road or working toilet to speak of [...]



    7. I started this book knowing very little about Albania After reading it, I have come to realize that the Albanians as a people have been treated badly by everyone in history, from their colonial masters in the Ottomans to their very on paranoid dictator Hoxha It is amazing that after the fall of communism they did not descend into chaos like Yugoslavia My only criticism is that the author would mention people and give no explanation as to who they are, expecting the reader to already know who the [...]


    8. This is one of the few books written in the English language that covers Albania Vickers gives a good overview of Albanian history and politics It is a good read for anyone wanting to learn about one of the least known about countries of Europe You will come to appreciate a complex history and group of people that have lived through war and oppression for years.
