The book

Greece in the Balkans: Memory, Conflict and Exchange

is now available from

The volume includes a chapter, by this blogger, on the Greek-Albanian rapprochement of 1971 .

Here's the description:

This volume brings together young researchers in an interdisciplinary study of Greek interaction with other Balkan states over the past two hundred years. The thirteen chapters of the volume reflect the diversity of a long and complex relationship between Greece and its Balkan neighbours. They thus shed refreshing light on its persistent attributes of opportunity and risk, attraction and enmity, exchange and exclusion, through exploration of historical, anthropological, literary, political and economic perspectives.

And here's some information on the editors of the volume:
