Yugoslavia as History, first published in 2000, examines the bloody demise of the former Yugoslavia in the full light of its history. It provides a balanced understanding of the common hopes and fears which held its ethnic mosaic together, and the ethnic conflicts which broke it apart. This book examines the origins of these competing forces, and how they fared as the Yugoslavian states formed after the two World Wars searched for a multi-ethnic political culture and economic viability. This edition of John Lampe's accessible and authoritative history devotes a full new chapter to the tragic ethnic wars that have followed the dissolution of Yugoslavia, first in Croatia and Bosnia, and most recently in Kosovo. The author concentrates on the connection, real and imagined, between these conflicts and the experience of the successor states, the two Yugoslavias and their predecessors.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Lampe...is an authority on the Balkans whose dispassionate judgments provide unique insights into the origins of the collapse." Boston Globe
"Yugoslavia as History sketches an indispensable historical background to the cataclysmic events that swept away an entire country. Lampe's book is a corrective to both the hostile and the nostalgic approaches to Yugoslavia. The real story is much more complex, and Lampe tells it with insight, judgment, and clarity." Warren Zimmermann, US Ambassador to Yugoslavia 1989-1992 and author of Origins of a Catastrophe: Yugoslavia and Its Destroyers
