YUGOSLAVIA by George Kish


Email this review


An informatively and decoratively successful addition to the Lands and Peoples series by a geography professor at the University of Michigan. Yugoslavia's geography- the dryness of the Karst, the comparatively lush Dalmatian coast, the more fertile Danube valley; and her history- Byzantine and Roman cultural influences; Roman Catholicism in the northwest- the Greek Orthodox Church in the southeast; Servia and Montenegro as cultural rebirth centers; and the present day struggle between Tito and the Soviet, are told in a text that clearly follows the contours. Excellent classroom material.
