Bosnia and Herzegovinaby Michael A. Schuman
The Nations in Transition series explores the independent governments formed after the fall of communism in Eastern Europe, the Balkans, and Central Asia. The series is designed to give readers and researchers clear and thought-provoking portraits of each of these nations. Each volume surveys the history, culture, and political and social changes of the past few years and includes 25-35 photos, a chronology of key events, easy-to-understand maps, and a further reading section.
The war in Bosnia ended in 1995 with the signing of the Dayton peace agreement, which created a two-tier government in Bosnia and Herzegovina. A multiethnic national government took charge of foreign and economic policy, and two regional governments -- the Bosniak/Croat Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the Bosnian Serb-led Republika Srpska -- managed internal affairs. This new volume in the Nations in Transition series provides an in-depth look at the current situation in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the country's ethnic conflict and its history, and the difficulties it faces in implementing the terms of the peace agreement.
Comprehensive in scope, Bosnia and Herzegovina begins with an overview of the country's history, from Roman times to the present. In a style that is clear and concise, the book continues to examine the complicated government structure and diverse religious communities of Bosnia and Herzegovina, as well as its economic situation, culture, daily life, and major cities.
