Balkan Propaganda Wars provides an historical, political, and propagandistic perspective of the volatile situation that exists in the Balkans. The book reviews the historical background of the Balkan people especially those belonging to the former Yugoslavia from Antiquity through the troubled centuries of the Middle Ages, and continuing with the birth of the modern Balkan states in the 19th century and the more recent political and military evolutions during the 20th century. For each period, the role of propaganda is underlined and examined. The unbiased background the book supplies will allow users to gain an impartial perspective on events such as the Yugoslav War, the Kosovo War, ethnic cleansing, and the large population shifts these events brought about. UN and NATO informational performances in Bosnia and Kosovo are deeply scrutinized and compared during UNPROFOR, IFOR, SFOR, and KFOR missions. The resulting information war between NATO and Yugoslavia are also presented and analyzed.
