Balkan Ghosts: A Journey Through History


In 1990 the author travelled through the Balkans from Vienna to Istanbul, through southern Austria and Croatia, Old Serbia and Albania to Macedonia, Romania and Bulgaria. This book moves from city to countryside, as Kaplan journeyed by road, river and rail taking the reader into the hearts and minds of the people condemned to a history of bloodshed and hatred. Kaplan calls the Balkans "history's cauldron"; it is the place where 20th-century history began with the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand in Sarajevo - and where the world's eyes are focused as the century draws to a close.
