The author himself states that Albanians are of Illyrian origin (which to me is dubious at best while Dacian thesis seems more and more logical) thus you can not say he is 'biased' or 'anti-albanian' while there is not much to write from a viewpoint of a early 20th century writer about two subject which in themselves haven't really contributed all that much historically speaking in Balkans versus say Greeks, Bulgarians, Serbs, Turks, Romans, Byzantines in terms of what has been recorded. Hence the reason why there is not much to state about either one of them.
What is stated is that Illyrians were primitive barbarian tribes of whom some (southern ones) were blessed to be at least semi-civilized due to proximity of ancient Greece (which in itself was blessed to be under influences coming from near east and Egypt).
Albanians were mentioned as primitive warlike tribal mountaineers who were basically illiterate until almost 20th century (till then loyal ottoman subjects) and who became independent primarily due to territorial separation from Ottomans and in order to prevent Serbs and Greeks from taking over what is now known as Albania.

19th century minded literature... amazing read.... lol!!
(PS: I know the actual date of publication, however most histories pre-WWII are based on all too often antiquated terminology and ideas that were thrown out in the aftermath off WWII. Terms like "primitive" or "barbaric" are no longer considered to be anthropologically adequate terms. But considering out Aadmin has only recently discovered literature... I guess it will suffice).
They don't need to write much about Illyrians... a piece of their art is enough to understand their majesty...:
The book also forgot mentioning the masterpieces of illyrian and albanian literature until 1900...
