Description - The New York Times Twentieth Century in Review by Ana Siljak

The peoples of the Balkan Peninsula have struggled for centuries with a legacy of oppression and fractiousness. Divided by geography, language, religion, and above all ethnic affiliation, they have embraced uncompromising nationalism in a perpetual, often brutal drive to assert their rich cultural identities. Compiling more than 600 articles and 100 photos taken from The New York Times , The Balkans tells the story of the cultural, religious, political, and military struggles that transformed this small geographical area into one of the most volatile and contested regions of the twentieth-century world-one that destabilized empires, sparked a global war, and continuously threatened to upset the balance of power in Europe. With coverage that extends from 1875 to 2000, this two-volume set provides extensive background as well as the most up-to-date information at the turn of the millennium. * Thematic organization outlines the development of key ideas, movements and events * Articles are arranged chronologically within each thematic section * Subject indexes let readers quickly pinpoint specific topics * Byline indexes allow readers to look up the works of individual authors * Coverage provides a balance of news stories, essays, and editorials * Articles have been re-typeset for ease of reading
