The Albanians by Edwin E. Jacques is a must read for all who are related to Albania and the Albanians in any way.
Reverend Edwin E. Jacques, a former Protestant missionary to Albania prior to World War II, deserves an important place in Albania's 'hall of fame.' Rev. Jacques is one of the few foreigners who really fell in love with the 'Land of Eagles.' His book 'The Albanians' is a work of love. The time, energy, research, and care that needed to go into writing this book proves that few other men have loved this country more than Rev. Jacques. The book is divided into two parts. Both parts are intriguing and informative. In fact, the book includes a lot of new information even for the Albanian student of history, let alone foreigners interested in this land.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

The Truth about Albanians
This book is inclusive of many forgotten facts about the ancient Albanians. The truth is that the Pelasgians were made of three kingdoms Thrace-Macedonians, Illyrians, and Epirus. All three of them had something incommon, they spoke a similar language, worshiped the same ancient dieties, had the same traditions which are Pelasgian, and are explained in a meaningful way by the Albanian language of modern days. Robert D'Angely in 'Enigma' supports the same idea that Albanian language explains the Pelasgian gods known as Greek mythology. Also, another writer Aristidh Kola in his book 'The Language of Gods' supports the same idea: Albanian language is the language of ancient 'Greek' mythology. Nermin Vlora Falaski does the same. This book is a must read in order to understand the truth about the origin of the most ancient people in the World, the Pelasgians, today's Albanians.Was this review helpful?
