The publication Society, Politics and State Formation in Southeastern Europe during the 19th Century includes the proceedings of an international conference held on the subject of the economic development of the countries in Southeastern Europe during the 19th century. The conference was hosted in Corfu in October 2009 by the Alpha Bank Historical Archives.
The authors studied state formation in Southeastern Europe during the period when national states were being established. The need to understand the history of the area, led to casting aside the traditional view about states that failed to modernise.
The originality and uniqueness of the texts lies in the authors’ efforts to study the subject under a different light: They adopt new tools and explore new themes. As such, this publication fills a significant gap in international literature.
