The Republic of Croatia is one of the new countries that resulted from the collapse of the former Yugoslavia.

Booknews
Focuses on people and events since the Republic of Croatia rose from the ashes of Yugoslavia in 1990, including Croatians living outside the country and other peoples living within it. But also provides information on the history of the people and the region back to the later Roman Empire, and of the stable social, cultural, and linguistic foundations underlying the currently precarious political and military situation. Includes an extensive, topical bibliography, though articles are not referenced individually. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR booknews.com
