NEW PUBLICATION: Balkan Legacies of the Great War: The Past is Never Dead

25 January 2016

Published by Palgrave Pivot St Antony's Series (November 2015)

Editors: Othon Anastasakis; David Madden; Elizabeth Roberts

This is a rich yet succinct account of an underexplored story: the consequences of the Great War for the region which ignited it. It offers a fascinating tapestry: the collapse of Empires, the birth of Turkey and Yugoslavia, Greece as both victor and loser, Bulgaria's humiliating defeat; bitter memories, forced migrations, territorial implications and collective national amnesias. The legacies live on.
