Black lamb and grey falcon

Author: Rebecca West

Language: English

Summary: a travel book written by Dame Rebecca West, published in 1941 in two volumes by Macmillan in the UK and by The Viking Press in the US. The book is over 1,100 pages in modern editions and gives an account of Balkan history and ethnography during West’s six-week trip to Yugoslavia in 1937. West’s objective was “to show the past side by side with the present it created”. Publication of the book coincided with the Nazi Invasion of Yugoslavia, and West added a foreword highly praising the Yugoslavs for their brave defiance of Germany. The book’s epigraph reads: “To my friends in Yugoslavia, who are now all dead or enslaved”. – Source: Wikipedia
