Yugoslavia: Death of a Nation is the first comprehensive political history to be published of how the West lost Yugoslavia. The war is the most violent and costly conflict that Europe has seen since 1945.

This extraordinary book is the first to identify and reconstruct the key moments and pivotal events in both the path to war, and in the war itself. For the first time, all the heads of the rival states tell the inside story of the start of the conflict. Written with flair and authority, Yugoslavia: Death of a Nation explains how we arrived at the atrocities that no one could imagine in the euphoria surrounding the collapse of the Berlin Wall in 1989.
