Publisher Description

“Rebecca West’s magnum opus . . . one of the great books of our time.” —The New Yorker
 
Written on the brink of World War II, Rebecca West’s classic examination of the history, people, and politics of Yugoslavia illuminates a region that is still a focus of international concern. A magnificent blend of travel journal, cultural commentary, and historical insight, Black Lamb and Grey Falcon probes the troubled history of the Balkans and the uneasy relationships among its ethnic groups. The landscape and the people of Yugoslavia are brilliantly observed as West untangles the tensions that rule the country’s history as well as its daily life.

Her very best!

One of the best 10 books I’ve read in my lifetime. I immediately went and bought everything Dame Rebecca wrote, and while they were terrific, Black Lamb is superb! Not only do you share the intimate travel views and see far beyond the tourist stops, Dame West gives us a very intimate Avenue into the souls of the many people she touches on her 3 month journey.q just a wonderful book, I didn’t wait it to end!
