M. Edith Durham is best known for her classic travel books about the Balkans. However she was also a passionate, articulate and well-informed commentator on Balkan politics and the machinations of the Great Powers. This book brings together articles and letters written by Durham which have been out of the public domain since their original publication in journals, magazines and newspapers. Written in Edith Durham's inimitable style, the book delves beneath the surface of events and offers a compelling portrait of the continuing struggle for Albanian independence. Although the materials in the book were written over sixty years ago, they presage current events in the Balkans with an uncanny resonance. The book will afford readers a remarkable insight into the historical origins of contemporary events in the Balkans.
