This book brings together important original contributions to scholarly and political/policy debates over the disintegration of Yugoslavia, and especially the war in Bosnia. The analyses are grounded on empirically-based arguments about social and political dynamics, resonate with much larger/enduring issues of social science inquiry, and consistently challenge commonly-held beliefs about the Balkans that are based more on ignorance, misunderstanding, or outright prejudice, than on intimate knowledge of the region, its peoples, and their histories. When first published, some of these essays represented sharply distinctive analyses which have since then become "common wisdom." Hayden's arguments about how this multinational European federation collapsed following a severe economic crisis are disturbingly relevant to analyzing the crisis of the European Union twenty years later.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Much of the Western policy community has struggled to come to terms with this region, which was and is at best poorly understood. Hayden's analysis, built upon a substantial grounding in South Slavic languages and the Balkan area's stormy history, as well as empathy with its cultural attributes, is in contrast remarkably lucid, not to mention tragically prescient ... a refreshingly thoughtful and extraordinarily insightful volume" R. Craig Nation, U.S. Army War College, in Southeastern Europe 38.2, 2014
