During the Gulf War, David Fromkin's A Peace to End All Peace became a bestseller, as Americans sought an intelligent, clear overview of the Middle East. Now Fromkin draws upon his expertise in world affairs to explain how the Balkan turmoil is part of a larger drama of American power in the world. He brings a deep historical perspective to this ongoing conflict and offers readers a sense of what's really at stake in American intervention there. To a great extent, Fromkin argues, both sides are still dealing with the aftermath of World War I, when Yugoslavia was carved from the Hapsburg and Ottoman empires (with no resolution of the ethnic strife among its peoples), and America adopted a new world order based on humanitarian ideals.In his trademark clear and elegant prose, Fromkin explores military power in the world today and defines the new paths American leaders must follow to contend with such ruthless adversaries as Yugoslavian President Slobodan Milosevic. Addressing a wide range of enduring issues for America and the world, Kosovo Crossing is the one book every reader must have in order to understand what is happening in the Balkans today, and what the repercussions will be in the new millennium.
