Following a historical overview of the region through the 1980s are topical essays on the downfall of Tito's Yugoslavia; the war in Bosnia-Hercegovina; the myths, propaganda, and politics that nurtured the hostilities; and the international community's bumbling response to the Yugoslav crisis. Rogel focuses on local Yugoslav and international politics, which were responsible for the state's disintegration, the brutal war and ethnic cleansing that followed, and the uncertainty the peoples of the former Yugoslavia face at the end of the 20th century. Several of the key political figures featured in the lengthy biographical profiles are unknown in the West, making this an especially valuable source for student research. Primary documents include an excerpt from Zlata's Diary.
