Historical Dictionary of Bulgaria, Hardback Book

Historical Dictionary of Bulgaria Hardback

Part of the Historical Dictionaries of Europe series


Few states have fought as hard or as long to be established as that of the Republic of Bulgaria.

The Bulgarians have over the centuries created their own principalities, kingdoms, and republics only to have them crushed by stronger entities, including the Byzantine and Ottoman Empires.

While recently, the communist regime was largely dominated by and overly submissive to the Soviet Union.

Fortunately, about fifteen years ago, a new republic arose, which began revamping the economy, reviving the political life, and forging a new place in Europe. This second edition of the Historical Dictionary of Bulgaria contains more than 600 cross-referenced entries on Bulgarian historical periods, places, terms, organizations, events, and personalities.

The number of entries, dealing with historical figures and events, has been considerably enlarged, and all of the entries of the first edition that have remained were carefully updated.

The newest insights of Bulgarian historiography as practiced in Bulgaria and abroad are also reflected.

In addition, the book includes a brief introduction into Bulgarian history from the earliest times until mid-2005 (including the formation of the current cabinet), an easy-reference chronology of Bulgarian history, several maps, and lists of Bulgarian political parties, administrations, and leaders.

A comprehensive bibliography is included to facilitate further reading on Bulgaria and Bulgarian history.
