From the Publisher"An impressive collection of essays that provides valuable insight into the forces of change that have buffeted the former Yugoslavia since the end of the Cold War. Blitz has brought together in a single volume some of the world's leading scholars, journalists and diplomats to produce an excellent guide to this troubled region."
-Richard Caplan, Department of Politics and International Relations, University of Oxford and author of Europe and the Recognition of New States in Yugoslavia
"War and Change in the Balkans will smash some of the major illusions and myths about the Yugoslav break-up and wars. It is full of good sense and a welcome corrective to the various contrived explanations which abound in the field of Yugoslav studies. Brad Blitz and his contributors bring clarity, integrity, and insight to their task and have produced a volume which will be useful for specialists, generalists, practitioners, and students alike."
-Sabrina P. Ramet, Department of Sociology and Political Science, Norwegian University of Science and Technology and author of Balkan Babel: The Disintegration of Yugoslavia from the Death of Tito to the Fall of Miloevi; and Thinking about Yugoslavia: Scholarly Debates about the Yugoslav Breakup and the Wars in Bosnia and Kosovo
"The collection is excellent and a valuable contribution to the ever expanding body of scholarship on the Balkans and on issues related to the former Yugoslavia in particular. It reminds us that there are still many unanswered questions as we assess the recent past and many critical challenges as we look past an era of conflict toward a brighter future for the region."
