  • Collision Course: NATO, Russia, and Kosovoby John Norris

    ABC-CLIO 2005; US$ 57.00

    If Europe, Russia, and international bodies such as the U.N. and NATO end up playing a more prominent role in Iraq's immediate future, all parties, including the United States, would do well to revisit the lessons learned during the U.S.-led war in Kosovo in 1999. As a confrontation over Kosovo's final push for independence looms, this book offers... more...

  • Don't Mourn, Balkanize!by Andrej Grubacic; Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz

    PM Press 2010; US$ 16.00

    Presenting a radical leftist perspective on the recent history of the Balkan region, this collection of essays, commentaries, and interviews argues that the dismantling of Yugoslavia is just another milestone in the long history of colonialism, conquest, and interventionism. Written between 2002 and 2010, this volume addresses significant happenings... more...

  • Macedoniaby John Phillips

    I.B.Tauris 2004; US$ 14.95

    Macedonia is a Balkan powder-keg ready to explode. A bloody rebellion by Albanian guerrillas demanding equal rights to the dominant Slavs in Macedonia killed and wounded hundreds of people, many of them innocent civilians, and raised fears that the crisis would suck in surrounding Kosovo, Albania, Bulgaria and Greece. International intervention brought... more...

  • Kosovo and International Societyby Professor Alex J. Bellamy

    Palgrave Macmillan 2002; US$ 160.00

    This book explains the international engagement with the Kosovo conflict from the dissolution of Yugoslavia to Operation Allied Force. It shows how Kosovo was deliberately excluded from the search for peace in Yugoslavia before going on to demonstrate how a shaky international consensus was forged to support air strikes in 1999. In doing so, it exposes... more...

  • Nationalists Who Feared the Nationby Dominique Reill

    Stanford University Press 2012; US$ 65.00

    We can often learn as much from political movements that failed as from those that achieved their goals. Nationalists Who Feared the Nation looks at one such frustrated movement: a group of community leaders and writers in Venice, Trieste, and Dalmatia during the 1830s, 40s, and 50s who proposed the creation of a multinational zone surrounding the... more...

  • War Over Kosovoby Andrew J. Bacevich; Eliot A. Cohen

    Columbia University Press 2005; US$ 37.99

    While many analysts view the war for Kosovo as a one-sided affair of passing importance, this volume insists otherwise. To a greater extent than any other episode since the end of the Cold War, the war in Kosovo revealed the distinctive attributes of a new American "way of war." In so doing, the conflict also brought into sharp focus the dilemmas... more...

  • The Macedoniansby Ernest N. Damianopoulos

    Palgrave Macmillan 2012; US$ 100.00

    Overturning the 20th century's prevalent view of the Macedonians, Damianopoulos uses three domains of evidence - historical documentation, cognitive self-descriptor reports, and sociocultural features - to demonstrate that the Macedonians are a unique, non-Slav, non-Greek, ethnic identity. more...

  • The CNN Effect in Actionby Babak Bahador

    Palgrave Macmillan 2007; US$ 105.00

    This project advances the existing theoretical work on the CNN effect, a claim that innovations in the speed and quality of technology create conditions in which the media acts as an independent factor with significant influence. It provides a novel interpretation of the factors that drove Western policy towards military intervention in this area. more...

  • The Macedonian Questionby Dimitris Livanios

    OUP Oxford 2008; US$ 144.99 US$ 124.69

    The Macedonian Question-the struggle over a territory with historically ill-defined borders and conflicting national identities-is one of the most intractable issues in Balkan history. Dimitris Livanios explores the British dimension to the problem, from the outbreak of the Second World War to the aftermath of the Tito-Stalin split. more...
