Crampton follows this journey, and analyses the development of Bulgarias political culture, examining the emergence of radical movements, both agrarian and socialist, as well as looking at the role of religion and the position of minorities. Crampton highlights the problems and dilemmas created by the countrys position situated between East and West, problems which might not be entirely solved by the countrys admission to the EU.
