Historical Dictionary of Montenegro covers a period of some fifteen centuries during which the name of the country changed from Doclea, through Zeta to Montenegro, and its political status evolved from a loose community of tribes to a principality, a kingdom, a district, a banate, and a constitutive republic, from disappearing from the political map of the world in the first half of the twentieth century to a state with full independence at the start of the twenty-first century.
This book features a chronology, an introduction, and an extensive bibliography. The dictionary section has more than 800 cross-referenced entries on important personalities as well as aspects of the country’s politics, economy, foreign relations, religion, and culture. This book is an excellent resource for students, researchers, and anyone wanting to know more about Montenegro.
