Kosovo: Contending Voices on Balkan Interventions

Front Cover
William Joseph Buckley
William B. Eerdmans Pub., Jan 1, 2000 - History - 528 pages
This is the first book in any language to bring together -- in a powerful point-counterpoint format -- political, ethical, and cultural commentary on the Kosovo conflict by internationally renowned contributors. Also woven into the book are moving firsthand stories of the suffering Balkan people.

Composed of some sixty essays written in dialogue with one another, the book contains assessments by noted politicians and analysts (Henry Kissinger, Juergen Habermas, Zbigniew Brzezinski), government officials (Javier Solana, Kofi Annan, Vaclav Havel, Morton Halperin), award-winning journalists (Mark Danner, Tim Judah, Robert Kaplan), human rights advocates (Julie Mertus), theologians and ethicists (Jean Bethke Elshtain, Brian Hehir, David Little, Vatican Archbishop Tauran, Stanley Harakas), historians (Miranda Vickers), military leaders (General Wesley Clark), and many other key figures.

The book also includes photos, maps, a time line, a list of key names, NATO objectives, and online resources for further study of this critical regional conflict with worldwide implications.
