'... 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
