Book's frontpage

In 2007 Bulgaria became part of the European Union, but the course of this country in the heart of the Balkans, forever caught between two empires, the Russian and Turkish one, is one of the most troubled and least known in European history.
 
This introduction to the history of Bulgaria, for centuries at the crossroads of Europe and Asia, extensively covers its ancient and recent history up until the latest years of transition, economic reform and entry into the European Union.
