Book Description

30 Nov 1997
This presents a detailed historical account of German diplomacy in the first year of the Yugoslav crisis and a thorough analysis of the issues that Germany and the international community faced at the time. Written by the German diplomat responsible for the conduct of German policy on the working level, the book is a first-hand view of the motives, perceptions and actions of the German government. Part 1 is a chronological treatment of the responses of the European Community and of the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe to developments on the ground - in particular, the military conflict in Croatia and the German role in shaping these responses. Part 2 provides a systematic treatment of the causes of the confict and the major issues raised by the Yugoslav crisis, such as questions concerning self-determination, frontiers, the role of history, and the recognition of successor states. Taken together, the two parts provide a comprehensive analysis of the origins of international involvement in the Bosnian war.

Product Description


"[H]e correctly identifies the problematic role of self-determination and Yugoslavism in the crisis of 1991-1992....He also correctly highlights the hypocrisy in Milosevic's periodic espousal of self-determination....He provides a detailed account of the negotiations leading to the December 15, 1991 decision of the European Union to recognize Croatia and Slovenia on January 15, 1992....Libal has read widely and does a strong, if polemical, job of confronting the major published accounts of Yugoslavia's collapse....Libal succeeds in adding another dimension to our understanding of European diplomatic reactions to Yugoslavia's collapse."-

4.0 out of 5 stars Extract from �Books on Bosnia�, London 1999 13 Mar 2000
By A Customer
Highly valuable study of German policy towards the break-up of Yugoslavia and the beginning of the Bosnian war, arguing cogently against the 'premature recognition' thesis; the author was head of the German Foreign Ministry's Yugoslav Department, 1991-5.
