"This volume concentrates on the Balkan wars and World War II, which both had their origins in the desire of nationalist circles to complete the territorial unification of their states. A substantial part of this book deals with the wartime experience, the establishment of the postwar regimes and their internal development to 1980 and the divergent paths followed by the five states (Bulgaria, Greece, Montenegro, Romania and Serbia) since 1945"-Publisher's description.
As New in As New jacket. 6" x 9" 475 Pages Indexed. As new book with no defects noted. Interior text pages are flawless. This volume, which deals primarily with events in the twentieth century, begins with a discussion of the internal developments in Bugaria, Greece, Montenegro, Romania, and Serbia from around 1878, and of the Romanian and South Slav nationalities of the Habsburg Empire from IS67. Despite their internal problems the independent Balkan states placed their first emphasis on acquiring lands still under Ottoman or Habsburg rule. The Balkan Wars of 1912 and 1913, and in part World War 1, had their origins in the desire of nationalist circles to complete the territorial unification of their states. The peace settlements after 1915, which established boundaries very similar to those in effect today, fulfilled most Romanian and Serbian desires, but left many Albanians, Bulgarians, Croats, and Greeks dissatisfied and resentful. In the interwar period the Balkan governments suffered from world economic and international crises and also from national and political conflicts within and among the states. After 1941, when war engulfed the peninsula, the Balkans became a battlefield between the Allied and Axis forces and the scene of the organization of resistance movements of major significance for the post-war settlement. A major part of this book deals with the wartime experiences of the Balkan states, the establishment of the postwar Communist governments, and the internal development of these regimes to 1980. The divergent paths followed by the five states since 1945 are discussed in detail. Contents inn Two Parts: War and National Consolidation 1887-1941 and World War II and the Postwar Developments. Illustrated with 15 Maps.
