The Break Up of Yugoslavia (Arbitrary Borders) By Kate Transchel
English | Publisher: Chelsea House Publications 2006 | 112 Pages | ISBN: 0791086518 | PDF | 3 MB
The Balkan Wars of the 1990s ripped the former Federal Republic of Yugoslavia apart and resulted in war crimes and atrocities not seen in Europe since World War II. But these wars entailed than territorial disputes - they were the result of arbitrary social, cultural, and ethnic borders that have developed over centuries. This lucid book will help students understand how the location and accessibility of the lands of the South Slavs determined Yugoslavia's volatile history as a battleground of peoples, empires, and cultures. Historically, Yugoslav lands have been located in the "fracture zone" between East and West, Christianity and Islam, and have always been a focus of international rivalries. In the 20th century, two Yugoslavias were created and destroyed: the first from 1918 to 1941; the second from 1945 to 1991.
