Millions of tourists visit Croatia each year. Every summer, thousands of people walk along the famously beautiful marble-tiled street in Dubrovnik, now a World Heritage site. Of the countries that have emerged since the collapse of communism and the second "springtime of nations", Croatia`s story remains amongst the least known. Yet this is a country with a rich, compelling and turbulent past. In this updated edition of his acclaimed history, Marcus Tanner takes us from the first Croat principalities of the Dark Ages and the formation of the early Croat kingdom in the 9th century through to the country`s independence in the modern era. Along the way, he introduces us to the rich and diverse people and lands that make up Croatia today.
