Adam Yamey first visited Albania in 1984 during the years of the Hoxha regime. 32 years later he re-visited the country. In his new illustrated book "Rediscovering Albania" Adam Yamey contrasts his recent experiences of the country with what he encountered in 1984. In this detailed travelogue he also compares what he saw with what has been recorded by earlier visitors such as Lord Byron, Edward Lear and Dayrell Oakley-Hill. 


"Rediscovering Albania" not only describes what Adam saw in the country, but also tries to set his observations in the context of Albania's intriguing history and vibrant present. You can explore more of Adam Yamey's books at
