Imagining the Balkans

Updated Edition

Maria Todorova

  • Based on a rich selection of travelogues, diplomatic accounts, academic surveys, journalism, and belles-lettres in many languages
  • Explores the ontology of the Balkans from the sixteenth century to the present day, uncovering the ways in which an insidious intellectual tradition was constructed, became mythologized, and is still being transmitted as discourse
