But it has also been burdened by a traumatic post-colonial experience. The transition from traditional multi-national empires to modern nation-states has been accompanied by large-scale political violence that has resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands and the permanent displacement of millions more. Mark Biondich examines the origins of these conflicts, while treating the region as an integral part of modern European history, shaped by much the same forces and intellectual impulses as other parts of Europe. It reminds us that political violence and ethnic cleansing have scarcely been unique to the Balkans."--Front flap."@en ;
