Advert Description

Oxfam Books & Music Beaconsfield

This illustrated book provides a detailed account of the multifaceted and complex history of Bosnia from a cultural perspective, focusing on the successive waves of religious, cultural and ethnic influences that swept over the country from Paleolithic times onwards. The political history of the numerous invasions, migrations and changes of government that have taken place in the country is interspersed with sections concerning the additions and modifications made to the Bosnian national culture as a result. The evolution of the Bosnian Church as distinct from the Greek Orthodox and Roman Catholic Churches; Church and secular architecture, both ancient and modern; literature and writing from the earliest times to modern poetry; engraved and inscribed Bosnian gravestones; music and the coming of radio and television are all discussed in relation to the formation and evolution of Bosnia's distinct culture. Illustrated with maps and photographs.

Slight shelf wear to the covers but otherwise a very good clean copy.
