The Fall of Milosevic: The October 5th Revolution Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Told for the first time, the riveting story of how common people-miners, cooks, former soldiers-shook off the intimidation of Serbian strongman Slobadan Milosevic and overthrew, peacefully, his tyrannical regime. Based on numerous interviews with participants, from the man in the street to top officials in the Serbian regime, The Fall of Milosevicrecounts the exhilaration, fear and chaos of a population rising in opposition to a tyrant, the “Butcher of the Balkans.” As the people gather in protest, behind the scenes the pillars of Milosevics regime crumble as politicians, military officers, and the police desert a leader no longer legitimate in the eyes of the people. This is the story of individuals facing down fear and rising up for democracy.

Book News Annotation:

Based on interviews with 60 individuals—government ministers, army officers, police officials, and "ordinary" people— this work by Serbian journalists Bujosevic and Radovanovic reconstructs the events of October 5th, 2000, in which Serbian crowds forced the resignation of Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic. The narrative encompasses events in the street, the actions of the police and the army deciding whether to obey orders coming from Milosevic, and the planning meetings of the political opposition.
