Studies in the History of the Albanians

Noel Malcolm

  • Ranges widely over social, political, and religious history, from the fifteenth century to the twentieth
  • Offers new arguments about broader subjects such as religious conversion, 'crypto-Christianity', enslavement, and the development of myths of national identity
  • Makes a significant contribution to the history of the Mediterranean geopolitics of the Napoleonic Wars through a long study on Ali Pasha
  • Uses hitherto unused sources to shed light on many events and processes that are relevant to Ottoman history more generally
