A political memoir by a key witness to the chain of events that would send the Balkan empire toppling, aided by notable figures like Slobodan Milosević .

Mesić was member, later last head of the Yugoslav Presidency. His memoir details an intricately woven storyline, which analyzes events, personalities and motivations inside Yugoslavia, as well as in the international arena. Extensive notes and a short chronology assist the interested reader and scholar in disentangling the complicated plot.
