Abstract:

For nearly forty years, up until his death in 1980, Tito, the Yugoslav leader, was world-famous - first as a Partisan against the Germans, then as the first Communist head to break with the Soviet Union, then as a pioneer of the 'non-aligned' world between East and West. Yet, twelve years after Tito's death, Yugoslavia ceased to exist and its people were caught up in a violent civil war. Was Tito to blame? Richard West's revealing biography answers this and other questions.
