Format: Paperback
Having made friends with a couple from Dobrich, I was keen to understand more about their wonderful country. One evening over dinner Rosi said, "You Brits stole our empire!" I wondered what on earth she meant, but this book helped me understand that we Brits (with help from others stepped in at The Treaty of Berlin to overturn a decision of the Treaty of San Stefano to give the nation of Bulgaria jurisdiction over three times more land than they now control, including Macedonia.

I learned nothing about this part of the world at school (or I was asleep!). I had not thought of Bulgaria as part of the Balkans, but this is where Catholicism, Orthodoxy and Islam meet, where Communism, Western Capitalism and Islam rub shoulders; I guess the record of war to the west, makes this nation a buffer zone.

Understanding other people from other nations must be good. This book is helping me.

This was a nice text, although, perhaps in light of its purview, is a little hasty in its delivery, as I suggested above.

Indeed it emphasises politics above all else, and, while this is interesting, it lacks a certain social dimension which would have added a little humaneness to the work.

Overall a pleasant read.
