    schema:reviewBody ""The Historical Dictionary of Albania: New Edition provides a comprehensive overview of Albanian history as well as contemporary Albania as it enters the twenty-first century. The dictionary focuses on both the past and the modern European nation struggling to put its formidable Stalinist history behind it. For half a century, Albania was a planet of its own, isolated from the rest of the Earth. Since the fall of the communist regime, the Albanians have been striving, not without difficulty, to find their place among the nations of Europe." "The majority of the more than 700 entries in this dictionary comprise historical and contemporary public figures and political leaders, as well as individuals, Albanian and foreign, who have made notable contributions to Albanian studies and culture. The entries cover history and politics, culture and religion, foreign relations, language, economics, and social customs. Additionally, the Historical Dictionary of Albania includes a further dimension - Albanians living outside the country, whether as part of an earlier diaspora or cut off by artificial and sometimes contested borders. The introduction, chronology, and dictionary entries provide readers with the background of Albania and its people. Those who want to learn more about specific aspects can consult the helpful bibliography. Because a large portion of the material in this dictionary has never appeared in English, this book makes the elusive Albanian nation far more accessible."--BOOK JACKET." ;
