The work enriches the bibliography on ethnography and makes an important contribution to the interpretation and understanding of the modern identity of the Vlachs of Greece.The book was published in collaboration with the Egnatia Epirus Foundation.

An album of rare photographs highlighting the multiple dimensions of the Vlach populations living in both Greek and Ottoman lands in the Balkans in 1900.  Greek language text. 226 B&W illus, 12 maps.
