"In the light of recent events in the Balkans, Edith Durham can again be seen as very much centre stage." From the Introduction by Harry Hodgkinson; "Edith Durham sparkles like no other commentator of her time." Noel Malcolm, author of "Kosovo" and President of the Anglo-Albanian Association."
In this new book, compiled and edited by Bejtullah Destani, are articles and letters written by M. Edith Durham, none of which have been in the public domain since their original publication in a number of journals, magazines and newspapers. Written in Edith Durham's inimitable and pungent style, the book delves behind the service of events and paints a compelling portrait of the continuing struggle for Albanian independence. Although the materials in the book were written over 60 years ago, they presage current events in the Balkans with an uncanny resonance. The book will afford readers a remarkable insight into the historical origins of contemporary events in the troubled Balkans.
