Gwybodaeth Bellach:
For a decade and a half, the Balkans have formed one of the most disreputable regions in the British geographical imagination. In the post-Cold War period, between the demise of the Soviet Union and the rise of 'global terrorism', the region has been constantly criticised, vilified and viewed as a threat to Europe and to European values, becoming one of the most significant 'others' of Western civilisation. Nevertheless, there has yet to be written a comprehensive analysis of the complex forms and historical sources of the British concept of the Balkans, or of its frequently unexpected changes over time. The Debated Lands addresses that deficiency.
Focusing on the popular genre of travel writing, the book examines over 400 British and American literary texts in order to outline and account for the multiple ways in which the Balkans have been represented from the mid-nineteenth century to the present day. After sourcing Western conceptualisation in the imperial discourses of the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, attention is paid to the denigration of the Victorian and Edwardian eras, the sudden military allegiances of the First World War, the romanticisation of the inter-war years and, after an ambivalent mixture of sympathy and disappointment during the Cold War, the return to vilification in the 1990s.
"I was impressed with the range of texts he considers and the sensitivity of his treatment of specific issues. Reading the texts against the backdrop of international political issues was hugely instructive." Professor B. Haddock, Cardiff School of European Studies, Cardiff University
