The anthology is an exceptionally rich collection of diverse texts since it brings together the knowledge of different cultural contexts, from the Austro-Hungarian Empire to the remnants of the Ottoman Empire; specific historical frameworks; sometimes opposing ideological backgrounds; and many local resources using different languages spoken in the countries whose painful experiences of the two world wars the book explores. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
