Croatia: Land, People, Culture Volume II
This volume continues the story of the cultural and political history of the Croatian people who have long been noted for their significant contributions to the arts and the humanities. It examines the Croatian language, literature to 1835, the maritime history of the eastern Adriatic, Croatian political history from 1526 to 1918, the development of book printing, the ethnic and religious history of Bosnia and Hercegovina, the cultural achievement of Bosnian and Hercegovinian Muslims, and Croatian immigrants in North America. Each of the nine chapters in the book is written by a specialist and is accompanied by an extensive bibliography. Other special features of this volume are eleven historical maps of the region, a geographical map, sixteen pages of illustrations, and a glossary of geographical names.
This reference work will be invaluable to libraries, and will be a useful source of information for historians, writers on Central European affairs, students of art and ethnic developments, and the layman interested in the Croatian people and their cultural history.
