An excellent high-level study of a brutal conflict under-represented in print. From the brutal occupation by the Ottoman Empire to the bitter wars of the nineties fueled by racial and religious hatred.

This book stops before more recent events in Kosovo and NATO involvement, but is none the less a comprehensive snapshot of modern Yugoslavia.

I especially liked how he showed how Milosevic used the historical identity of Serbia to ignite a nationalistic movement that went too far.
