1.0 von 5 Sternen Just Tell The Story
I thought this book read like it was translated form a foreign language several times before it got to english. I spent so much time and effort trying to quote decipher references and credits I found it very difficult to read. It seemed like every sentence started outlike this "According to Inyuc Geronovitch on page three of his book ......." I think it...

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Serious Historical Analysis, 20. Dezember 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Imagining the Balkans (Taschenbuch)
Maria Todorova wrote an excellent book, which is a thorough review of the political history of the Balkan Peninsula. She explains the various political interests that have always been at play in that region.The author also qoutes different foreign travellers, diplomats, and writers showing their attitudes to the countries and the nations of the Balkans. The first part of the book (the first three chapters) will be specially interesting for larger audience while the rest of the book is more theoretical. Given the current events concerning the Balkans, and especially the disintegration of former Yugoslavia, this book will be of great help to students of history, political history, their teachers and intellectuals in general.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Dense in literary analysis of past Balkan writers., 29. September 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Imagining the Balkans (Taschenbuch)
Todorova's book changed the way I viewed the Balkans. By analysing the way in which Balkan and Western European wrote about the Balkans, "Imagining the Balkans" shows how this peninsula became the recipient of totally negative and pejoritve notions about Europe. Todorova deals well with some writers sentimentality, and over romanticization which unfortunetly persists today and leads not to understanding but to cinfusion of the issues. Old metaphores such as "the Balkan Pouder Keg" are shown to be only a way of dismissing a whole group of people as "irrational peasants." Although quit heavy in theory, a worth while read for any serious history student.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Imagining the Balkans (Taschenbuch)
I thought this book read like it was translated form a foreign language several times before it got to english. I spent so much time and effort trying to quote decipher references and credits I found it very difficult to read. It seemed like every sentence started outlike this "According to Inyuc Geronovitch on page three of his book ......." I think it may have been a good book but it was so distracting to read. I did not finish it. I did not even get through the first chapter I left it on an airplane. There is no way you can Imagine the Balkins with this book it is an absolute chore to read. I would like to tell the author to put up your thesaurus (we know you can use big words) use foot notes do not start every sentence with with some credit to someone. Try to be less of a far out creative writer. AND JUST TELL THE STORY
