Yugoslavia as History is the first book to examine the bloody demise of the former Yugoslavia in the full light of its history. This new edition of John Lampe's accessible and authoritative history devotes a full new chapter to the tragic ethnic wars that have followed the dissolution of Yugoslavia, first in Croatia and Bosnia, and most recently in Kosovo. John Lampe concentrates on the connection, real and imagined, between these conflicts and the experience of the successor states, the two Yugoslavias and their predecessors.Read more

Reviews & endorsements
"Lampe...is an authority on the Balkans whose dispassionate judgments provide unique insights into the origins of the collapse." Boston GlobeSee more reviews
"Yugoslavia as History sketches an indispensable historical background to the cataclysmic events that swept away an entire country. Lampe's book is a corrective to both the hostile and the nostalgic approaches to Yugoslavia. The real story is much more complex, and Lampe tells it with insight, judgment, and clarity." Warren Zimmermann, US Ambassador to Yugoslavia 1989-1992 and author of Origins of a Catastrophe: Yugoslavia and Its Destroyers
