A century of Albanian and Balkan history is seen from an unusual variety of perspectives in this collection of new essays in honour of a man who parachuted into the country during the Second World War. It includes fresh analyses of aspects of Albania in wartime and of Enver Hoxha's regime and its fall, and first-hand accounts and critiques of the role of the international community in the region. Contributors are a unique mix of well-known academics and senior international diplomats and specialists, including Nada Boskovska, Bernd Fischer, James Pettifer, Miranda Vickers and Robert Wilton.
