Overview

The Republic of Croatia is one of the new countries that resulted from the collapse of the former Yugoslavia. To its own people, however, it is a very old country with a long-awaited chance to forge a nation. In this revised edition, the author helps readers to understand what happened to Croatia and why, and the current status of the divided country more than 10 years after it became a new state. It sticks to the facts, emphasizing that the Croatian perception of history will play a dominant role in the ideology and political behavior of the Croats for a long time to come. The chronology has been brought up to date, new entries have been added, and existing entries have been expanded. The bibliography has been revised to include recent works that have appeared since the publication of the first edition.

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)
