The rich and dramatic story of the Bulgarians is traced from medieval times through Ottoman rule and the cultural flowering of the nineteenth century to the turbulent years of the twentieth century. The story is told in straightforward, non-academic style, and is the only compact, illustrated history of Bulgaria in the English language.

I read before traveling to Bulgaria to do a grad level social assessment in Bulgaria. Felt better prepared to understand the culture and governmental processes after reading it.
