Historical Dictionary of Bosnia and Herzegovina

Overview

Diversity has been the core of Bosnia and Herzegovina's personality. Even its "dualistic" name and physical geography display a lack of homeogeneity. The medieval Bosnian state never enjoyed lasting political and ideological unity. Its rifts were feudal, regional, and religious in nature, or a combination of the three. Because of its location and by a quirk of history, three major world religious and cultural traditions (Catholicism, Islam and Orthodoxy) became cohabitants in this small Balkan country.

Overview

Diversity has been the core of Bosnia and Herzegovina's personality. Even its "dualistic" name and physical geography display a lack of homeogeneity. The medieval Bosnian state never enjoyed lasting political and ideological unity. Its rifts were feudal, regional, and religious in nature, or a combination of the three. Because of its location and by a quirk of history, three major world religious and cultural traditions (Catholicism, Islam and Orthodoxy) became cohabitants in this small Balkan country. The recent birth of its statehood, however, has been exceptionally bloody and its diversity has been shaken. At the present time, it is hard to say if this new European country is in the process of remaking or of breaking itself. "The Historical Dictionary of Bosnia and Herzegovina" was created to assist the interested researcher in sifting through the long and complicated history of this region — from its first settlement by Paleolithic and Neolithic tribes, through the Roman, Medieval and Ottoman periods, to monarchical rule by the Austrians and Hungarians, incorporation into Yugoslavia, and through the war of aggression cum civil ethnic conflict to the implementation of the Dayton accord to the present day.

Author Biography: Ante Cuvalo (Ph.D., Ohio State University) currently teaches at Joliet Junior Colege in Joliet, Illinois, and has also held teaching positions at Ohio State University. He has written many articles dealing with Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, and the former Yugoslavia. He is a regular contributor and Associate Editor of "American Croatian Review", a quarterly journal published in the United States.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

In this update of a 1997 edition, Cuvalo (Joliet Junior Coll.), who is both an academic expert on the Balkans and a native of the region, treats his complex subject with breadth, depth, and clarity. While he does not neglect earlier periods, the most intensive sections of this dense volume deal with the complex sociopolitical aftermath of the 1995 Dayton Peace Accords, which helped put an end to the civil war in the region. The work follows the standard format of the publisher's "Historical Dictionaries of Europe" series, which includes a chronology from antiquity to the present, a detailed introduction of the geography and history of the country, an alphabetical dictionary of 300 entries, and an up-to-date bibliography so extensive that it occupies nearly a quarter of the book and has its own table of contents. Additional sections on spelling, acronyms, and abbreviations provide important support for the English-language reader. Entries for organizations are alphabetized by the English translation of their name first, while publications such as newspapers are alphabetized by the original language name first.
