Abstract:

"Since the Cold War, Western diplomacy in the Balkans has been like a dance among quarreling friends. In Balancing in the Balkans, Tanter and Psarouthakis treat this region as a laboratory for exploring ideas about globalism - the creation of transnational economic communities, tribalism - the disintegration of nations into ethnic factions based on ancient hatreds. The authors debate the best way to achieve "balance" and how parties in conflict can learn moderation and peaceful coexistence."--Jacket.
