In a timely and passionate survey of Balkan history since the early 19th century, Misha Glenny provides the essential background to recent terrible events in this war torn area. No other book covers the entire region and offers such profound insights into the roots of Balkan violence or explains so vividly the origins of modern Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia, Greece, Bulgaria, Romania and Albania. The books account of each national group in the Balkans and its struggle for statehood is lucid and fair-minded, and brings the culture of different nationalisms to life. The author interweaves a narrative of key events with the story of international affairs - the relations between the states in the Balkans and between them and the great powers.
