By M. Janeczko - Published on Amazon.com
The book is a wealth of information, and it is one of the only good, all-encompassing books on albanian history. But make sure you know that it is a chronological history, almost a medieval-style chronicle. There is almost no overall theme or story from the author, and we get very little of the author's own views, it is simply a day-by-day, month-by-month history of Albania in the 20th century. If you know Albanian history rather well, read this to enhance your knowledge. If you are trying to get to learn Albanian history, read something else first, probably Edwin Jacques' 'The Albanians' is the best introductory all-serving book.

By Piro - Published on Amazon.com
This is the first concise and complete history of the modern Albanian state in English. A chronological order of events following the years of independence to the consolidation of the Albania state and the Albanian Monarchy. Pearson provides a detailed and vivid account of Albanian political personalities and the overall political environment of the time. The book is objective and free of any domestic or international political biases, which is difficult to maintain given the regions turbulent past. Recommended for anyone interested in Albanian studies, Balkan or Eastern European history.
