As the UK publishers of 'False Apocalypse' by Fatos Lubonja, we are deighted that he has been recognised in this way.

Independent and consistently objective in his analysis, Fatos Lubonja is a leading critical voice in his country. His writings offer lucid exposés of events in Albania’s recent history. A regular contributor to newspapers and television commentary, and editor and publisher of a critical journal, he tackles sensitive issues and fearlessly speaks truth to power.
