Overview

Journalist Tim Judah’s classic account, now brought fully up to date to include the overthrow of Miloševic, the assassination of Zoran Djindic, the breakaway of Kosovo, and the arrest of Radovan Karadžic.

 

Praise for the first edition:

"A lively and balanced history of the Serbs."—Aleksa Djilas, New York Times Book Review

"Judah writes splendidly. . . .The story he tells does much to explain both the Serb obsession with the treachery of outsiders and their quasi-religious faith in the eventual founding, or rather reestablishment, of the Serbian state."—Mark Danner, New York Review of Books 

"Judah's book is probably the best attempt to date to explain the calamitous situation of the Serbs today through a meticulous consideration of the Serb past."—David Rieff, Toronto Globe and Mail

Tim Judah was Balkans correspondent for the London Times and the Economist, and has been a frequent contributor The New York Review of Books.

    very poor work

    well if tim judah lived in Kosova or Croatia during the wars in former Yugoslavia, he probably would have written different version of serbian history and not proclaiming them as the victims of poor leadership and that the serbs were in ballkans before the others, like he sais they were majority in kosovo but somehow they became minority because of migration and so forth. That is distortion and mutilation of history- reasons why because most of his literature, Tim Judah,the author, have been taken from Serbian writers and historians. Maybe if the author,Tim Judah, consulted some more croatians historians and albanian historians and writers for that matter, his book would be more interesting!..
