Founding a Balkan state : Albania's experiment with democracy, 1920-1925 by Robert C Austin( )

12 editions published between 2000 and 2017 in English and held by 704 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Founding a Balkan State provides the only comprehensive assessment in English of these events. Robert C. Austin first delves into the country's weak domestic and international position both before and after the First World War, then assesses the internal and external challenges posed to its state- and nation-building efforts. Austin shrewdly demonstrates how the missed opportunities of Albania's political transition affected the course of Balkan history for decades to come."--Pub. desc
Making and remaking the Balkans : nations and states since 1878 by Robert C Austin( Book )

9 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Each brief book in this highly curated series focuses on big ideas related to the Munk School of Global Affairs' key themes (including, for example, global innovation, global security, global justice, and the global economy). Munk Series titles highlight each author's unique voice, engaging curious readers with vivid narratives, insightful analysis, and lively prose. Books selected for the Munk Series are accessible and intellectually significant, meeting a rigorously high standard of scholarship. With more than 25 years since the collapse of communism, the end of the wars and billions of dollars in aid, the Balkans are still characterized by corruption, state capture, and decidedly unmodern states that are often either weak or authoritarian. Taking the contemporary Balkans as a starting point, Making and Remaking the Balkans studies the region's history combined with observations based on more than twenty years of field experience. Primarily concerned with current issues in the Balkans since 1989, this book explains why the region has endured such a prolonged and fraught transition to democracy and eventual membership in the European Union. The young and educated have largely left. Governmental crisis and economic stagnation is the norm and much-needed regional cooperation has been suppressed by renewed nationalism. Wars on corruption have proved to be largely rhetorical. Making and Remaking the Balkans offers a systematic study of the issues the entire region faces as it struggles to complete the European integration process at a time when the European Union faces bigger problems elsewhere."
Ideologies and national identities : the case of Twentieth-century Southeastern Europe( )

in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Twentieth-century Southeastern Europe endured three, separate decades of international and civil war, and was marred in forced migration and wrenching systematic changes. This book is the result of a year-long project by the Open Society Institute to examine and reappraise this tumultuous century. A cohort of young scholars with backgrounds in history, anthropology, political science, and comparative literature were brought together for this undertaking. The studies invite attention to fascism, socialism, and liberalism as well as nationalism and Communism. While most chapters deal with war and confrontation, they focus rather on the remembrance of such conflicts in shaping today's ideology and national identity. "This ably edited volume dealing with twentieth-century southeastern Europe is most welcome. ...the project coordinators came to an agreement with their collaborators to foicus on nationalis, communism, fascism, liberalism, and religion. And indeed, all of these elements may be found between the covers of this volume, although the contributors were evidently given free rein. ...this volume offers insights into some neglected areas and is a most welcome addition to the literature on the history of East Central Europe." - The American Historical Review "A truly unique and splendid addition to historical writing on southeastern Europe... Unique is the editors' insistence that each author include several translated primary sources. The diversity of sources is unrivaled by any documentary reader available to those of us who teach European, east European or Balkan history." - Slavic Review
Founding a Balkan State : Albania's Experiment with Democracy, 1920-1925 by Robert C Austin( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Founding a Balkan State examines the pivotal period in Albanian history when the countryetapos;s fundamental goals and directions were most hotly contested. In 1920, liberal Albanian leaders - led by the US-educated Bishop Fan S. Noli - began working to introduce democracy to the country, hoping that it would lead to modernization, prosperity, and overturning the legacy of five hundred years of Ottoman rule. In 1924, these leaders mounted a successful revolution; by 1925, however, their forces were in retreat. Albania soon slid into dictatorship under Ahmed Bey Zogu - first as president, then as self-proclaimed king.Founding a Balkan State provides the only comprehensive assessment in English of these events. Robert C. Austin first delves into the countryetapos;s weak domestic and international position both before and after the First World War, then assesses the internal and external challenges posed to its state- and nation-building efforts.
