'It is a pleasure to see the reissue of L.S. Stavrianos' The Balkans Since 1453. This monumental book, first published in 1958, has served as an eminently useful corrective against all sorts of imbalance and partiality, that have hindered the study of the subject, [and entirely deserves the praise lavished on it over the past 40 years]. It remains to this day a towering achievement, and a masterly work of synthesis. Its reappearance in the bookshops was long overdue, and the publisher deserves credit not least for offering a nicely produced paperback edition. [A...] Stavrianos has woven a rich and colourful tapestry made of many different threads, and gives full weight to the internal and external forces that shaped the history of the Balkans over 500 years.' --Dimitris Livanios, Anglo-Hellenic Review
