  • Post-Yugoslaviaby D. Abazovic; M. Velikonja; Dino Abazovi?

    Palgrave Macmillan UK 2014; US$ 96.67

    This interdisciplinary examination of present-day identities and histories of the former Yugoslavia explores relationships with the social, political, cultural and historical 'facts and fictions' that have marked the different parts of the region.

    There can be no region in Europe whose history has been more tortured than Ukraine.

For the first time in the... more...

They were not necessarily anti-Soviet, by their very nature both criticising... more...

  • The Chargeby Mark Adkin

    Pen and Sword 2017; US$ 9.43

    The charge of the Light Brigade! One of Britain's best known glorious disasters. This book shatters many long-held conceptions of how and why it happened, and who was to blame.
