An authoritative guide vividly details the tumultuous past, present, and future of this unfortunate country, which has been plagued by violence, horror, ethnic strife, and failed politics for many years.

McMillan Palgrave
Yugoslavia: A Concise History surveys the whole turbulent course of the country's history, in the context of the struggles between great powers for control of the Balkans. Torn apart by nationalist rivalries, the first Yugoslavia lapsed into paralysis and dictatorship. Axis occupation in 1941 unleashed a murderous civil war, in which the Communist Party emerged victorious. Tito's Yugoslavia appeared to the world as a peaceful, multi-national federation, but in the end disintegrated amid barbarism unknown in Europe for half a century. This revised and fully updated edition explains why, and takes the events up to the arrest of Milosevic in 2001and beyond.

Book News
Benson (politics and sociology, University College Northampton, UK) presents a history of the former Yugoslavia that begins in the dissolution of the Ottoman Empire in the late 19th century and ends in the extradition of Slobodan Milosevic to The Hague in July of 2001. Political forces are given primacy over social and economic developments as she explores successive efforts to impose differing political orders on the "land of the southern Slavs." Annotation c.
