The ‚Balkan space‘ in the 19th century fell into a zone of limited modernization, which led to an unbalanced economic development. Therefore, the complexity of the circumstances requires research into the process by putting it into a European-wide and Balkan-regional context.

International scholars have seen the 19th-century Bulgarian economy as a local phenomenon resulting in very few extensive and detailed works. Accordingly, the editors hope the present study volume will contribute to filling that gap.

The case study of the broad and diverse network of people and ventures of the brothers Evlogi and Hristo Georgievi took the ‚central stage‘ of the book as an illustration of the evolution of the Bulgarian society and elite in the 19th century.
