A great deal of attention from international journalists, negotiators, and politicians has been directed toward the region comprising the former Yugoslavia. The civil strife that followed the fragmentation of Yugoslavia was a vivid reminder of exactly how unstable and violent the "new world order" could become. The Federal Republic of Yugoslavia remains the largest and most populous successor state to Socialist Yugoslavia. This fact alone makes the "new" Yugoslavia an important player in Balkan relations. Therefore, this volume on the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia is key to understanding the future of this region, and Europe as a whole. Rather than an exclusive history of the current Yugoslav state, it is a broad-based reference book of the cultural factors and events, people and institutions, that lent shape to Serbian and Yugoslav culture, and hence the origins of the current situation that too often may be found on the nightly news. Suster has weighed the views not just of historians, but also of political scientists, art historians, economists, artists, and other specialists, providing the reader with a full and complete sense of Serbian culture. An extensive chronology is included to provide a broad introduction. The Statistical Annex, a wonderfully helpful reference feature, places essential figures and data in one location. Additionally, a number of maps and tables illustrate the geography and provide a visual perspective of various entries, and the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia in general. Also included are usage notes of on the Cyrillic alphabet and latinization of Serbian words, as well as lists of abbreviations and acronyms. The book concludes with a comprehensive bibliography subdivided by topic.
