Actually the individuals nobles for most called themselves Bosnjani. He's doing Western propaganda and you're doing the typical Eastern propaganda of Greater Serbia. To take nationalism of the late 1800s and 1900s into account when talking about populations that had no knowledge of such ideology is preposterous.

I din't have enough time to read it all, but what I read seems to be pretentious. Just one example: Why would the author call Bosnian king Stjepan, and not Stefan, when king himself called Stefan (see the original Charter sent to Dubrovnik).
He also called his language Serbian (Srpscie). The Catholicism in Bosnia, that author drags through "the story" has nothing to do with ethnicity of the population, which mainly was of Serbian descent, origin, parentage etc. I have nothing more to say, but typical for a Westerner, of what ever heritage, the author or the authors is/are. I would drag the parallel line here between this book and the Hague tribunal. Untrue
