Amazon.com: Dubrovnik: A History (9780863563324): Robin Harris: Books… From its settlement in the 7th century to its conquest by Napoleon at the beginning of the 19th, Dubrovnik repeatedly held a significant position beyond what could have been expected of this tiny city-state. But Dubrovnik also faced the extreme dangers posed by Venetian plotters, Ottoman aggressors, natural disasters and, finally, Napoleon. In modern times, the city survived the besieging Yugoslav army in 1991-92, which heavily damaged but did not destroy Dubrovnik’s cultural heritage. This book is a comprehensive history of Dubrovnik’s progress over twelve centuries of European development, encompassing arts, architecture, social and economic changes and the traumas of war and politics.

Dubrovnik: A History
February 13, 2005
Dubrovnik: A History By Robin Harris Saqi (2003), 503 pp., 40 pages of glossy color illustrations Reviewed by Christopher Deliso In Dubrovnik: A History, British author Robin Harris sets out, in his own words, to create for the first time “a modern, well-sourced and readable account of the history of the Ragusan Republic” (p. 17). Documenting the triumphs and travails of over a millennium’s worth of complex and interconnected events is a big job, but the author proves more than up to the task. The result is a very useful guide to a remarkable little city with a storied but relatively unknown past.
