About this book


The fragmentation of Yugoslavia is a culmination of the process of creation of nation states in the region which started early in the 19th century. Already at the time the national ideologies of Serbs and Croats - as well as the national ideologies of other national groups which emerged later - were in conflict over their respective territorial claims. This book traces the re-emergence of these national ideologies, their impact on the ensuing civil wars as well as the international efforts to end them.
