Abstract:

"Today the Republic of Yugoslavia comprises Serbia and Montenegro, just two of its six former republics. The current estimated population of over 11 million is less than half that of the former Yugoslavia. What led to the demise of this once progressive nation? The general consensus is that no single event is responsible; rather, the end grew out of a history of conflict and a tangled web of causes. Now a timely new reference work provides concrete information as well as insight into the complex and interwoven reasons that led to the eventual disintegration of the former Socialist Federation of Yugoslav Republics."

"Reflecting the contributions of an international team of 30 scholars and experts, this easy-to-use reference successfully captures and conveys a sense of the events and their interrelationships. This broad-based approach assures that students, journalists, researchers, politicians, historians, and other readers will find not only the specific information they seek but also something of the causes and meaning underlying specific occurrences." "In the nearly 500 alphabetical entries, readers will encounter the people, places, events, concepts, treaties, and agreements that contributed to and shaped the conflict in the former Yugoslavia of the 1990s."--Jacket.
