High Albania

New Edition. Edited and introduced by Robert Elsie

Albanian Studies, Vol. 20

ISBN 978-1516996766 Centre for Albanian Studies, London 2015 297 pp. High Albania is perhaps the most delightful book ever written about Albania and the Albanians. It has been widely read and enjoyed since its initial publication in London in 1909 and has influenced views of Albania more than its author, Edith Durham (1863-1944), would ever have thought. High Albania is an account of the British traveller and writer’s travels through the previously little explored and thus very exotic mountainous regions of northern Albania and Kosovo in 1908, in the wake of the Young Turk Revolution that first enabled foreigners to visit the „closed lands“ for a time.   Buy this Book on AMAZON
