Overview

This book presents a brief history of Serbia. The book examines the dual political threads throughout the 1800's: (1) the gradual liberating from Ottoman rule and the replacement of that authority by Serbs, and (2) the determined efforts by Serbs to limit their own rulers in such a way as to eventually result in a parlimentary democracy, which was accomplished by the end of the century.
