The last of the Celts by Marcus Tanner( Book )

7 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 820 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Marcus Tanner has journeyed throughout the Celtic world - from the wilds of northwest Scotland to the Isle of Man, from Brittany to Patagonia, and from Boston to Cape Breton - seeking to discover the Celtic past and what remains of authentic Celtic culture today." "Weaving together extensive historical research with first-hand observations of Celtic people in far-flung communities, Tanner finds that talk of a Celtic revival is largely misplaced. He describes the fading prospects of those who have maintained a Celtic identity in the face of powerful pressures to assimilate. Despite great public interest in all things 'Celtic', the threats to the world's remaining Celtic communities, their language and their culture, are relentless. A distinct Celtic identity may not survive, Tanner fears, and such a loss would impoverish us all."--Jacket

Albania's mountain queen : Edith Durham and the Balkans by Marcus Tanner( Book )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Young ladies in the Victorian and Edwardian eras were not expected to travel unaccompanied, and certainly not to the remote corners of Southeast Europe, then part of the crumbling Ottoman Empire. But Edith Durham was no ordinary lady. In 1900, at the age of 37, Durham set sail for the Balkans for the first time, a trip which changed the course of her life. Her experiences kindled a profound love of the region which saw her return frequently in the following decades. She became a confidante of the King of Montenegro, ran a hospital in Macedonia and, following the outbreak of the First Balkan War in 1912, became one of the world's first female war correspondents. Her popularity in the region earned her the affectionate title 'Queen of the Mountains' and she is fondly remembered in Albania until this day. Marcus Tanner here tells the fascinating story of Durham's relationship with the Balkans, painting a vivid portrait of a remarkable, if sometimes formidable, woman."--Amazon website

Mátyás király könyvtára : az elveszett corvinák nyomában by Marcus Tanner( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in Hungarian and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A szerző a tekintélyes brit lap, a The Independent szerbiai tudósítója volt az 1990-es évek elején, tehát sokkal mélyebben ismeri a közép-kelet európai történelmet, mint a nyugat-európaiak többsége. 2006-ban a brüsszeli Királyi Könyvtárban látta egy misekönyvben Mátyás király és Beatrix portréját, és ahogyan írja, "egyszerre közel éreztem magamhoz a királyi párt." Tanner ekkor már két éve kutatta Mátyás csodálatos könyvtára, a Bibliotheca Corviniana történetét, és elhatározta, könyvet ír azért, hogy megismertesse kortásaival Mátyást, aki szinte egyedülállóként magaslik ki a térség uralkodói közül. A könyv nem tudományos kutatási jelentés, hanem a korszak és az események remek, élvezetes, ugyanakkor hiteles bemutatása, s az író színes stílusa által meglevenedik az olvasó számára "egy nagy király és egy ihletett kulturális vállalkozás története'" Elöljáróban felvázolja a 15. századi Magyarország térképét, a királyi udvar képét, majd Mátyás halálától az időben visszafelé haladva kaluzolja az olvasót a Hunyadiak-kori Erdély, Janus Pannonius és Beatrix királyné Itáliája, a történelmi események, csaták, az udvari élet forgataga, és természetesen a páratlan könyvtár darabjai között. A könyvbe fűzött néhány színes táblán látható gyönyörű corvinák, korabeli festmények, a Schedel-krónika Budát ábrázoló metszete segítik az olvasót abban, hogy elképzelje ezt az eltűnt gazdagságot. A mű végén a ma ismert covinák jegyzéke, valamint alapos jegyzet-és mutató-apparátus található

Croatia - a nation forged in war; third edition by Marcus Tanner( )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the ashes of former Yugoslavia an independent Croatian state has arisen, the fulfillment, in the words of President Franjo Tudjman, of the Croats' "thousand-year-old dream of independence." Yet few countries in Europe have been born amid such bitter controversy and bloodshed: the savage war between pro-independence forces and the Yugoslav army left about one-third of the country in ruins and resulted in the flight of a quarter of a million of the country's Serbian minority.In this book an eyewitness to the breakup of Yugoslavia provides the first full account of the rise, fall, and rebirth of Croatia from its medieval origins to today's tentative peace. Marcus Tanner describes the creation of the first Croatian state; its absorption into feudal Hungary in the Middle Ages; the catastrophic experience of the Ottoman invasion; the absorption of the diminished country into Habsburg Austria; the evolution of modern Croatian nationalism after the French Revolution; and the circumstances that propelled Croatia into the arms of Nazi Germany and the brutal, home-grown "Ustashe" movement in the Second World War. Finally, drawing on first-hand knowledge of many of the leading figures in the conflict, Tanner explains the failure of Tito's Communists to solve Yugoslavia's tortured national problem by creating a federal state, and the violent implosion after his death.Croatia's unique position on the crossroads of Europe-between Eastern and Western Christendom, the Mediterranean, and the Balkans and between the old Habsburg and Ottoman empires-has been both a curse and a blessing, inviting the attention of larger and more powerful neighbors. The turbulence and drama of Croatia's past are vigorously portrayed in this powerful history
