Faik Konitza was one of the great figures of Albanian intellectual culture in the early twentieth century and a keen supporter of the Albanian Nationalist cause, yet little of his work is readily available in English. This important new edition presents Konitza's short history of Albania up to the exile of Ahmet Zogo - 'King Zog' - in 1939 together with some of Konitza's other key writings, analysing of the character of the Albanian people as well as their language, literature and religion. The wealth of material included in the book and Konitza's captivating style make this carefully selected anthology essential reading for all those interested in Albanian and Balkan history. For the non-specialist, it provides an enjoyable, accessible introduction to Albanian history and to Albanian culture in the early years of the twentieth century.
