Croatia, with its unspoiled dramatic coast, is a place of bewitching beauty, one of the hidden jewels of the Mediterranean. Yet most travellers know little more than it was once part of Yugoslavia.
Its runined Greek cities, Habsburg gardens, border fortresses, Roman palaces and ampitheatres, Byzantine basilicas and walled medieval towns only mock our lack of knowledge with their unexpected diversity. Within these covers the traveller can immerse himself into the glory of Croatia's past, from Diocletian to independence, seen through the eyes of outsiders and Croats alike.
This collection was edited by Stephen Lavington and Francis Gooding, with an historical introduction and epilogue by Peter Frankopan.
Contributers include: Rebecca West, Osbert Sitwell, Fitzroy Maclean, Mark Thompson, Jan Morris, Bill Strutton, Misha Glenny, John Gardner Wilkinson, Vladimir Dedijer, Evelyn Waugh and Edward Gibbon.
