Summary "At the end of the twentieth century, interregional hostilities in the former Yugoslavia culminated with Slobodan Milosevic's campaign of ethnic cleansing, NATO intervention in the region, and, ultimately, revolution. But these were just the latest episodes of upheaval in a region rocked by ethnic violence for centuries. From the settlement of the South Slavs in the sixth century to the crisis and democratization in the 1980s and the disintegration of the country in the early 1990s, The Former Yugoslavia's Diverse Peoples traces the bloody history of the region through to the fragile alliances of its present-day countries."--BOOK JACKET.
