..". a pioneering effort in English-language studies onAlbania." -- Nicholas C. Pano
Albanian history is permeatedby myths and mythical narratives that often serve political purposes, from thedepiction of the legendary "founder of the nation," Skanderbeg, to theexploits of the KLA in the recent Kosovo War. The essays in Albanian Identities, bya multinational, multidisciplinary team of scholars and non-academic specialists, deconstruct prevalent political or historiographical myths about Albania's past andpresent, bringing to light the ways in which Albanian myths have served to justifyand direct violence, buttress political power, and foster internal cohesion.Albanian Identities demonstrates the power of myths to this day, as they underpinpolitical and social processes in crisis-ridden, post-totalitarianAlbania.
