f VANISHED KINGDOMS
The Rise and Fall of States and Nations
“An expedition along the byways of European
history. It is in part a traveller’s tale, as Davies
tours his half-forgotten realms, describing people and landscape, searching for memories

of a historian about the states and societies
that are this book’s heroes and the reasons
why they vanished from the map.”—Dominic
Lieven, Financial Times.
