Black Lamb and Grey Falcon
A Journey Through YugoslaviaBook - 1969
Written on the brink of World War II, West's classic examination of the history, people, and politics of Yugoslavia illuminates a region that is once again the center of international concern. A magnificent blend of travel journal, cultural commentary, and historical insight, it probes into the troubled history of the Balkans and the uneasy relationships among its ethnic groups. The landscape and people of Yugoslavia are brilliantly observed as Rebecca West untangles the tensions that rule the country's history a well as its daily life."A masterpiece . . . as astonishing in its range, in the subtlety and power of its judgment, as it is brilliant in expression." -The London Times"Surely one of the great books of our century" -Diana Trilling
