''... a pioneering attempt in English-language reports on Albania.'' -- Nicholas C. Pano

Albanian background is permeated by means of myths and legendary narratives that regularly serve political reasons, from the depiction of the mythical ''founder of the nation,'' Skanderbeg, to the exploits of the KLA within the fresh Kosovo struggle. The essays in Albanian Identities, by means of a multinational, multidisciplinary workforce of students and non-academic experts, deconstruct standard political or historiographical myths approximately Albania's earlier and current, bringing to mild the ways that Albanian myths have served to justify and direct violence, buttress political strength, and foster inner unity. Albanian Identities demonstrates the ability of myths to today, as they underpin political and social strategies in crisis-ridden, post-totalitarian Albania.
