DURRELL, Lawrence. White Eagles over Serbia. London : Faber and Faber, (1957). First Edition. Pp [1]-200. 8vo, reddish-brown cloth, white lettering tospine. "Methuen, a seasoned survivor of countless spy missions thrust upon him by the Old Etonians running the Awkward Shop (as the British Secret Se rvice was called), feels he needs a respite from it all. He is looking forward to some trout fishing in Scotland. But when his superior, Dombey, explains that something strange is afoot in the Balkans, Methuen’s curiosity is immediately aroused. A fellow British spy has been murdered on a remote mountainside in Serbia by the White Eagles--presumably because he fell afoul of their life-or-death struggle against Tito and the Communists. What the Royalists are up to is a mystery Dombey wants Methuen to solve. The Cold War--weary Methuen feels his blood stir. At the very least, he thinks, the trout fishing ought to be excellent. Setting up camp in a cave deep in the Serbian countryside, Methuen baits his hooks and waits for the contact who willlead him into the deeper water of the mystery. He finds out soon enough th at his mission involves far more than sport fishing--hislife is the one on the line. Hunted by both the Communists and the White Eagles, Methuen is played to his limit. He fights for his life, summoning every ounce of his strength as he gets pulled into a roaring cataract of events that eventually lands him on a dizzying mountain peak--and reels readers in for a tour-de-force climax that will leave them breathless. Based on Durrell’s own experiences with the Foreign Office in Bucharest after WorldWar II, White Eagles over Serbia may be one of the finest spy thrillers ever written.” - (Arcade Publishing).

Index. 8vo, red cloth with gilt lettering to spine. "Thisbook examines the reasons for the Russian involvement in the Balkan penins ula and attempts to explain the connections that drew the Russian government into entanglements that were not only dangerous to its great power interests but contained emotional commitments that were difficult to control. Thewars, waged at a high human and economic cost, limited the resources that could be spent on internal development and, in particular when they ended in defeat, led to domestic unrest and, after 1856 and 1917, to drastic internal change." - from the preface. Contents: 1. Rights and obligations acquired: The advance to the Black Sea, the Danubian Principalities, and the Serbian revolution; 2. Rights and obligations defended and extended: The Greek revolution and the Russo-Turkish War, 1828-9; 3. The defense of the status quo: The Crimean War; 4.

University of California Press, Berkeley and Los Angeles, 1962, 
JELAVICH, Charles. Tsarist Russia and Balkan Nationalism : Russian Influence in the Internal Affairs of Bulgaria and Serbia, 1879-1886. Berkeley and Los Angeles : University of California Press, 1962. Second Printing. Pp (8),vii-x,(4),1-304. Map. Index. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. In the Russian and East European Studies series. "If Russia comes to liberate, she will be received with great svmpathy; but if she comes to rule, she will find many enemies." The Bulgarian writer Liuben Karavelov thus expressed in 1870 the attitude prevalent among the Balkan peoples toward tsarist Russia. Before her war with Turkey in 1877, Russia had been regarded by the Balkan Slavs as the one country among the great powers who could be expected to assist fulfillment of their hope of independent national existence. The Serbians and. in particular the Bulgarians had turned to their powerful northern protector for aid in their struggle against the Ottoman Empire in the hope that ties of race and religion would make the Russian government sympathetic to their demands for national unity. The combined diplomatic pressure of the great powers at the Congress of Berlin, compelled Russia to relinquish her dominant influence in Serbia to Austria-Hungary, but she was recognized as having hegemony over the newly created autonomous Bulgaria. This gave Russia an opportunity to demonstrate whether the Panslav ideals held byboth Russians and Bulgarians couia be put into practice. Despite hopes to the contrary, the Russian government soon found that the requirements ol foreign policy—particularly, the necessities of military strategy—conflicted with the policies of the Bulgarian government under the leadership of Prince Alexander of Battenberg. In controot, Russia's influence in Serbia was strengthened, for King Milan's strong Austrophil tendencies and his generallyunpopular actions served to draw the Serbian people closer to Russia. With in this framework the author discusses in detail the specific issues in Russo-Bulgarian and Russo-Serbian relations: the controversy in Bulgaria over the Russian-sponsored Bulgarian constitution, the Bulgarian railroads, the control of the Bulgarian army, and the personal animosities between the tsar and the prince; and, in Serbia, the ouster of Metropolitan Mihailo. Particular attention is paid to the dramatic culmination of the national struggle in Serbia and Bulgaria: the union of the two Bulgarias, the Serbo-Bulgarian War, and the kidnapping of Prince Alexander of Battenberg. This study isbased on material in the Public Record Office in London, in the Haus- Hof- Staatsarchiv in Vienna, and on thn papers of Nikolai Karlovich Giers, the Russian foreign minister in the period under discussion." (from the dj). Contents : 1. Introduction: Russia's Near Eastern Policy . 2. Autocratic Russia Sponsors a Constitutional Regime in Bulgaria. 3. The Russo-Bulganan Controversy over the Railroads and the Constitution . 4. Tsar Alexander III Supports Bulgarian Conservatism. 5. The Rule of General Sobolev and General Kaulbars. 6. Russia against the Prince. 7. Austria and Russia in Serbian Polities. 8. The Growth of King Milan's Russophobia. 9. The Triumph of Bulgarian Nationalism. 10.

Index. 8vo, illustrated green card covers. “INAT is a Serbian noun which does not directly translate into English, but roughly means “regardless of the consequences.” Far from being just a simple word, INAT is best described as a spirit which is embodied in the psyche of the Serbian people. This book is presented as a compilation of Scott Taylor's first-hand observations of Serbia during the 78-day NATO bombardment. INAT covers the xenith of the NATO air raids; the on again, off again peace talks,Russia's sudden race into Kosovo, the NATO (KFOR) deployment, the retreat of the Yugoslavian army, the flight of the Serbian refugees, and the bitteraftermath of the war on a bomb-ravaged Serbia.” - from the back cover.
