Nicholas Whyte[return][return]The title makes it sound as if this is a book restricted just to the one event, the Milosevic trial.

Well-written - it was easy to read (in terms of the writing style, not the subject matter) and it was well-organized.

It's also a great read for people (like myself) who know quite a bit about Balkan history. I would absolutely recommend this book.
