British policy towards the Balkans: Review opinion of the Aleksandar Rastović's book Great Britain and the Kosovo Vilayet 1877-1912, Zavod za udžbenike, Beograd, 2015
Institute for Political Studies, Belgrade



Formulation of British policy towards the Balkans and Serbia, through historical processes of long duration, is one of the most important and under-researched topic in the spite of numerous books, articles and texts. Publication of the book Great Britain and Kosovo Vilayet 1877-1912, written by prof. Dr. Aleksandar Rastović, who has dedicated himself to the study of the British-Serbian relations since the beginning of his academic career, launches a new scholarly discussion.
