Description - The Balkans by Dennis Hupchick
The tragedies of Bosnia and Kosovo are often explained away as the unchangeable legacy of "centuries-old hatreds". In this detailed and balanced chronicle of the Balkans across 15 centuries, Dennis Hupchick seeks to set a complicated record straight. Organized around the three great civilizations of the region Western European, Orthodox Christian and Muslim - this is a guide to the political, social cultural and religious threads of Balkan history, with a clear account of the reasons for nationalist violence and terror.
