This second edition of Bradt's Bosnia and Herzegovina provides a thorough update to the first English-language guide to this ex-Yugoslavian country. Visitors are provided with ample information to explore this very different destination, including special countryside attractions such as bird reserves and vineyards. A paucity of good, reliable information on the travel shelves makes this guide especially valuable for those planning an independent tour of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Features include: *Detailed coverage of the capital, Sarajevo, and the Herzegovina/Mostar region*All national parks, with hiking and mountain walks*Insights into people and culture: history, language, religion, myth, and cuisine*Practical information on visas, flights, acommodations, local transport, and suggested itineraries

Sadly, Mr Clancy falls into the trap of unfounded claims of revised historical research and much of his statements regarding Bosnia and Herzegovina's early and mediaeval history is a consequence of revisionism that occured during the 1990s. It is pity when non-historians try to write history. Cheap tourist advertising.
