An Explanation for the 1990's?, 13 Feb. 2013
Misha Glenny attempts to convey the confusion and the 'great power' manipulation in south east Europe during this period of history. It is clear ,however,that the local warlords are far from innocent bystanders and were easy prey to outside interference.
It puts the events of the 1990's into context.A valuable insight to those like me who have a particular interest in understanding the current animosity prevalent in the former Yugoslavia
