Children's LiteratureThe recent civil war was simply the last in a long line of conflicts that the area that now encompasses Bosnia-Herzegovina has faced throughout its long history. Despite the atrocities experienced during the 1980s and 1990s, Bosnia-Herzegovina is slowly recovering and has certainly learned from its mistakes, though the effects will be felt for years to come. Despite the turbulence that has tainted the country's past, Bosnia-Herzegovina has a rich history that can be seen throughout the country. It also has a beautiful landscape that was once a magnet for tourists from all over Europe. The text is a brief but thorough look at the history, politics, and geography of Bosnia-Herzegovina. There are numerous color and black-and-white photos throughout the text, though there are fewer photos than the title would imply. The text is part of the "Visual Geography Series." The title includes a web site that offers links to additional information about books in the series. 2007, Twenty-First Century Books, Ages 11 to 15.
