Book's frontpage

The wars of separation in the former Yugoslavia have provoked a major crisis of regional order with considerable implications for Europe and the international community as a whole. This collection seeks to identify some of the larger implications of the Yugoslav conflict for the conduct of interstate relations in the new international environment of the post-Cold War.

The studies assembled here are grouped around three broad categories. First, they address problems relating to the politics of force and international peacekeeping, including a critical analysis of the Dayton peace process. Second, they look at the foreign policy priorities of major state actors in the Balkan region. And third, they examine some of the larger problems in international theory that have been posed by the violent breakup of the Yugoslav federation.
The Yugoslav case is a tragic one, and it cannot yet be presumed to have run its course. For that reason among others, careful reflection upon the sources of the conflict, the challenges of peacemaking, and the lessons to be drawn from the experience are indispensable.
