Bosnia and Hercegovina: A Tradition Betrayed

Bosnia and Hercegovina: A Tradition Betrayed Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Bosnia and Hercegovina: A Tradition Betrayed, Donia and Fine shatter the myth that the former Yugoslavia has been plunged into civil strife by the end of the Cold War. To prove this point they examine Bosnia's rich historical traditions in light of the conflict that erupted there in 1992.

Review:

"Donia and Fine are two of the few established American historians of Bosnia. Readers will appreciate their skillful collaboration, for their book at once interprets the region's complex religious history, defends its distinctiveness against claims of Serbia and Croatia, and demonstrates its people's use of religion as a 'code' of identity rather than as a source of conflict.... Its purpose and clarity assure it a secure place in the literature of southeastern Europe." Library Journal
