Book Description I.B.Tauris Co Ltd, United Kingdom, 2014. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Revised ed.. 216 x 140 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Catapulted from totalitarianism to free market capitalism in 1991, Albania emerged from half a century of isolation to find itself an anomaly in Europe: a third world country economically, but first world in terms of education, literature and the arts. How has Albania transformed since then? Clarissa de Waal here explains Albania s transition from Communism via the experiences of a diverse range of families, highland villagers, urban elite and shanty dwellers - whose lives she has followed since 1992. De Waal shows that whilst the archaic world of customary law continues to pervade highland life, and squatters on state farmland live under constant threat of eviction, members of the ex-communist elite in Tirana embrace rentier capitalism. Albania, it seems, is a country wracked by contradictions. With unparalleled insights into the region, this book is a unique history told from the perspective of the participants. It will inform and engage all those interested in Albania and south-east Europe, and prove essential reading for students and specialists. Bookseller Inventory # AA79781780764849

Book Description I. B. Tauris, 2014. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Clarissa de Waal's brilliant study of the first dozen years of post-Communist Albania, published in 2003, showed an unrivalled grasp of both life at the grass roots and the 'agitated stagnancy' of the country as a whole. This updated volume, which brings the story up to 2012, underlines Dr de Waal's remarkable foresight a decade ago and provides a lucid analysis of the forces making for the 'perpetuation of stagnancy". Christopher Andrew, Emeritus Professor of Modern & Contemporary History, University of Cambridge. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_1780764847
