Debating the Past : Modern Bulgarian History: From Stambolov to Zhivkov Hardback


The debates are on the Bulgarian - Russian/Soviet relations, on the relations between Agrarians and Communists, on Bulgarian Fascism, and on Communism.

They are associated with the rule (regimes) of key political personalities in Bulgarian history: Stambolov (1887 - 1894), Stamboliiski (1919 - 1923), Tsar Boris III (1918 - 1943), and the communist leaders Georgi Dimitrov and Todor Zhivkov (1956 - 1989).

The debates are traced through their various articulations and dramatic turns from their beginnings to the present day.

The whole modern history of Bulgaria is reviewed in the light of the discourses, placed in socio-political contexts.

A genuinely modern historiographical syntheses in the East European field that contributes significantly to the gradual de-provincialization of the discipline
