Overview

This book provides a revisionist history of the rise and fall of Yugoslavia — and the geo-political and geo-strategic reasons for its creation and dismemberment. It is an important corrective to much contemporary theorizing about the destruction of the former Yugoslav republic, so often attributed to some ethnicity peculiar to the ‘backward’ peoples of the Balkans.Kate Hudson draws attention to those other external interests whose involvement in FRY did so much to distort and destabilize the region - and explains how and why the dream was shattered in the process. It is an important corrective and a timely account of a region that will continue to occupy centre stage for some time to come.
