This is an incredibly well-researched, very thorough discussion of the disintegration of Jugoslavia. The extensive footnotes, list of parties and organizations involved, and other supplemental material make it very easy to follow the entire story. If anything, the book is too thorough, plodding-on, explaining the entire step-by-step death of Jugoslavia, ensuring all factors are explained and all parties recognized. Unlike some other reviewers, I did not detect an anti-Serb bias. This book does (very strongly) place a great deal of the blame on Milosevic. I found it oddly sympathetic with Mladic; something I have a hard time understanding. I also felt that the book gives Kucan a good deal of blame for scheming to end Jugoslavia. I do think that the book does not paint Tudjman as dark as I think he actually was.

I read this book a few days ago, and while it very good describes how the war started, and the happenings that provoked the fall of the Communists, it is very pro-muslim oriented, and profoundly anti-Serb, especially the descriptions of the falls of some Bosnian cities. However the first 5 chapters are excellent.

This book of the disintegration of Jugoslavia is very detailed, nicely organized, and easy to read one. It covers the step-by-step death of Jugoslavia, and like many reviewers I found biases dragging all over the book as if the Muslims are saints and the Serbs devils. The blame on Milosevic is constant, but the blame of Tudjman does not exist. How good or bad Milosevic is/was, it was designed and decided by the USA and the Western Europe¿same like in Irag, with once Western darling Saddam Hussein and suddenly the evil, the demon. The ethnic differences in Jugoslavia were created and provoked by the USA and the Western Europe ONLY by corrupting the Balkans governments in search for more markets for their collapsing empires and places for their oil tubes for their SUV's and poluted fat ways of living.
