Item description for The Demise of Yugoslavia: A Political Memoir by Stipe Mesic...
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 Milosevic.
Formed in the aftermath of WWI, Yugoslavia was founded as the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes ("three tribes of the same people"). But in the early 1990s, following a series of violent conflicts on Slovenian and Croatian soil, the two republics successfully succeeded from Yugoslavia, which would later be followed by Bosnia-Herzegovina and Macedonia.
Mesis memoir details an intricately woven storyline, which analyzes events, personalities and motivations inside Yugoslavia and its former nations, as well as in the international arena. The narrative is rich with excerpts from Mesics personal diaries during times of heated conflict and bloodshed. Extensive notes and a short chronology assist the interested reader and scholar in disentangling the complicated plot.

The Demise of Yugoslavia: A Political Memoir Dec 27, 2009
Exraordinary book which depicts inside working of the Yugoslav Presidency, their inability to find solution for the upcoming disaster. Indeed, since I lived part of my life during these events I can appreciate sincerity of the President Mesic diary. Unfortunatelly, there are still personalities in Serbia that are free and never faced the justice they deserved. I highly recommend the book to anyone want to learn about why Yugoslavia slipped into the bloody war.
