With a new introduction by TRAIAN STOIANOVICH
A monumental work of scholarship, The Balkans Since 1453 stands as one of the great accomplishments of European historiography. Long out of print, Stavrianos' opus both synthesizes the existing literature of Balkan studies since World War I and demonstrates the centrality of the Balkans to both European and world history, a centrality painfully apparent in recent years.
At last, the cornerstone book for every student of Balkan history, culture and politics is now available once again.

A noted historian of the Balkans, TRAIAN STOIANOVICH is Professor of History at Rutgers University.Review:
"Stavrianos embraces both the world and a comparative approach to history and society. The Balkans Since 1453 represents an itinerary in world history. It provides readers with a view of time and space from a Balkan perspective but also with a vision of how to look at other regions of the world, and how to perceive the world itself as a unit composed of diverse spatial, temporal, and cultural components."-Traian Stoianovich,from the introduction
"Virtually every scholar and teacher of Balkan history and civilization today began training with Stavrianos' seminal work. Not only was it the principal work of synthesis for several decades—in a field which sorely lacked synthesis—but more significantly, it was, and remains, of considerable value because of its extensive coverage, clear organization, depth of analysis and readability. The Balkans Since 1453 has not only stood the test of time but remains the defining general work in the study of Balkan civilization."-Bernd J. Fischer,Indiana University
