Book Description

30 Jun 2008
In May 2006, following a closely and bitterly fought referendum, Montenegro finally regained the status of an independent nation that it had lost in 1918 - the most recent chapter in a highly turbulent history. The tiny Balkan republica??s declaration of independence from Serbia represented - barring the final resolution of Kosovoa??s status - the final stage in the disintegration of what was once Yugoslavia. But how did the Balkans forge this tiny republic? What sets it apart from the other dominant powers in the region? And what will be its future role on the worlda??s stage? 'Montenegro: A Modern History' charts the countrya??s contemporary history in accessible and comprehensive form. Kenneth Morrison explores the forces that have shaped the republic of Montenegro and questions where this will lead in the future, examining the fundamental issues of Montenegrin identity and statehood in a wider European as well as a Balkan context. This full and authoritative modern history is essential reading for everyone interested in the political and social dynamics of one of Europea??s youngest states.

Product Description


'... Morrisonâ s book is a must, not just because it is the only detailed book on this period of time and place, but because of its fascinating insight into the life and times of a tiny political elite at a time of huge change; their creation, their infighting, victories and defeats and how these led to the rebirth, in 2006, of an independent country.â - Tim Judah, author of 'The Serbs: History, Myth and the Destruction of Yugoslavia' and 'Kosovo: War and Revenge' 'A well-written and engaging history. The interviews with many of the main participants are excellent and wholly original; his treatment of the major theme of Islam is especially valuable.' - Cathie Carmichael, Senior Lecturer in European History, University of East Anglia

5.0 out of 5 stars The greatest work on Montenegrin histroy 14 Nov 2011
By Ruud Peeten - Published on Amazon.com
I have been studying Balkan history for many years now and this book was defenitely the most well-balanced and complete work I have ever read about the region. It's extremely detailed, but never boring. The author experienced Montenegro not only through reports and interviews with decisionmakers, but also by meeting ordinary people and hearing their stories. This makes the book not'just another summary of political events, but a fascinating story about a country evolving.

This book describes the long road that led to the disintegration of the small Balkan Republic of Montenegro from Serbia in the 1990-ies and onwards. The case of Montenegro is exceptional in many ways. The history of the country is extremely disputed. Historical data are always biased by political circumstances. But the author manages to distinguish myth and reality very well. He always finds the story behind the story. He describes political events in the light of ancients tribal divisions and modern events (the wars of the 20th centruy, the privatisation process). Modern and ancient forces in society are blended into a very exciting, yet very scientific story.

I stronlgy recommend decisionmakers or anyone else involved in the South-western Balkans, to read this, before acting or judging.
