Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Opposite Corfu one can see the mountains of Southern Albania, always difficult to visit, and especially so in the Communist period from 1944 to 1992. This area is called Northern Epirus by the Greeks, and contains many monuments of Greek and Roman civilization, such as those at Apollonia and Butrint. There are also relics of the Illyrians, claimed by the Albanians to be their ancestors. In the sixth century the Slavs invaded, but the district was re-captured by the Byzantines in the tenth century.
There were attacks from the West in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries and a period of anarchy until the Ottoman invasion in the fifteenth. Slavic place names, Byzantine churches, and artistic monuments of the Ottoman period are a tribute to this complicated heritage, as are the inhabitants of the area, who still speak Slavic, Greek and Latin dialects as well as Albanian. Balkan wars and world wars have added to the confusion that the book aims to disentangle, while showing through its photographs the beauty of a largely unknown part of the world.
