Summary "This first-person, on-the-road travel account takes us through one of the most dangerous and hate-filled regions on earth - the former republics of Yugoslavia - and into a land still immersed in brutal combat, Kosovo. Part travel diary, part historical guide, The Road to Kosovo shows us war and the struggle for peace through the eyes of a young journalist forced by circumstances to travel to Kosovo the hard way, by car, after being turned down for a Yugoslavian visa."--BOOK JACKET. "Though the peace agreement reached in Dayton in 1995 supposedly ensures freedom of movement, it is soon apparent that the threat of death lurks around every twist and turn. As the same international peace brokers who fashioned the Dayton Accord scramble and fret over Kosovo, the author and his readers have the rare opportunity to assess the Accord's impact on the ground."--BOOK JACKET.
"Told in a style that's sad, thoughtful, horrifying, and, above all, human. The Road to Kosovo bridges an important gap between what we are told of Bosnia and what truly has and continues to occur there."--BOOK JACKET.
