(p.1) Prologue

In Great Britain during the second half of the 20th century, Bulgaria was probably the least known of all the East European states. Even Albania, under the egregious leadership of Enver Hoxha, seemed to receive more media coverage. Only with the occasional scandal, such as the murder of Georgi Markov, was this apparent indifference abandoned and this ignorance dented. Shortly after the First World War, a major Bulgarian critic and scholar regretted that of all the foreign influences on Bulgarian culture, the English has been the weakest. The distance between Bulgaria and England remains too great today, even though Bulgaria is now on the threshold of membership of the European Union (EU).
