Overview

Historical Dictionary of Bosnia and Herzegovina by Ante Cuvalo

Diversity has been the core of Bosnia and Herzegovina's personality. Even its "dualistic" name and physical geography display a lack of homeogeneity. The medieval Bosnian state never enjoyed lasting political and ideological unity. Its rifts were feudal, regional, and religious in nature, or a combination of the three. Because of its location and by a quirk of history, three major world religious and cultural traditions (Catholicism, Islam and Orthodoxy) became cohabitants in this small Balkan country. The recent birth of its statehood, however, has been exceptionally bloody and its diversity has been shaken. At the present time, it is hard to say if this new European country is in the process of remaking or of breaking itself. "The Historical Dictionary of Bosnia and Herzegovina" was created to assist the interested researcher in sifting through the long and complicated history of this region — from its first settlement by Paleolithic and Neolithic tribes, through the Roman, Medieval and Ottoman periods, to monarchical rule by the Austrians and Hungarians, incorporation into Yugoslavia, and through the war of aggression cum civil ethnic conflict to the implementation of the Dayton accord to the present day.
