The Rose of the Balkans. Bulgaria in the Twentieth Century, Vol. 2

A Concise Bulgarian History for Curious Readers

For decades, I have read with curiosity numerous studies of our history before making the decision to write this book. And why did I get involved with this? There are so many books on Bulgarian history! But it seems to me, that they lack the story that the Bulgarian - not the expert on history, but the lover of the past of his/her people - deserves. Not a book that will nourish our false delusions of grandeur. And not one to cry over the lost chances and our plight today. I mean an interesting history, a history at least fairly honest and balanced, a history to be read as a novel. I wanted to paint a picture different from the one usually found in scientific explorations. I'm not sure how many of our compatriots can now look back at historical studies and say, "This is about me."
