By R. J. Crampton

Bulgaria is slated to join the ecu Union in 2007, but its background is among the least popular within the remainder of the continent. R. J. Crampton presents the following a basic creation to this nation on the cross-roads of Christendom and Islam. The textual content and illustrations hint the wealthy and dramatic tale from pre-history, in the course of the days while Bulgaria used to be the centre of a robust medieval empire and the 5 centuries of Ottoman rule, to the cultural renaissance of the 19th century and the political upheavals of the 20 th, upheavals which led Bulgaria into 3 wars. This up to date variation contains the years from 1995 to 2004, an essential interval within which Bulgaria persevered monetary meltdown, set itself heavily at the street to reform, elected its former King as leading minister, and at last secured club of NATO and admission to the eu Union.
