Item Details

Written on the brink of World War II, West's classic examination of the history, people, and politics of Yugoslavia illuminates a region that is once again the center of international concern. A magnificent blend of travel journal, cultural commentary, and historical insight, it probes into the troubled history of the Balkans and the uneasy relationships among its ethnic groups. The landscape and people of Yugoslavia are brilliantly observed as Rebecca West untangles the tensions that rule the country's history a well as its daily life."A masterpiece . . . as astonishing in its range, in the subtlety and power of its judgment, as it is brilliant in expression." -The London Times"Surely one of the great books of our century" -Diana Trilling

I would like to request another copy be purchased of this book. I have been waiting for it since June of 2012 and now it has a damaged and incomplete status.

This book is over 1000 pages and always has holds on it so cannot be renewed. I suggest the library order another copy or two.
