Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Elizabeth Pond has written an excellent and comprehensive account of where the Balkans are now, and how they got there. Her book illustrates how progress is achieved: slowly, painfully, imperfectly, with many setbacks. This is a story of regime change as it really happens, and behind it lies the big but undefined idea of Europe. A timely and valuable contribution to contemporary history." Robert Cooper, Director General for External & Politico-Military Affairs under EU High Representative Javier Solana. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE_book_new_0815771606

Über diesen Titel:


Can Europe tame the Balkans? That's the question veteran journalist Elizabeth Pond addresses in this timely and absorbing book. Starting with the wars of the Yugoslav succession, Endgame in the Balkans guides readers through the region's tumultuous recent history and explores both how the lure of European Union (EU) membership has affected the Balkans and how Balkan developments have shaped the EU. Drawing on hundreds of interviews, as well as decades of experience as a foreign correspondent, Pond moves deftly across the region, from Bulgaria to Romania, Kosovo, Croatia, Bosnia, Macedonia, Albania, and Serbia and Montenegro. She examines the many hurdles standing between these countries and EU membership —including poverty, corruption, and rabid chauvinism —as well as the hopes and problems that have led Balkan leaders to look to the West. In the process, she paints a vivid picture of the challenges facing the region as it seeks to vault from the nineteenth to the twenty-first century. Already in its brief history, the European Union has forged a historic reconciliation between France and Germany and helped consolidate democracy in Portugal, Spain, and Greece. But in southeastern Europe, it faces one of its most difficult tasks yet. En dgame in the Balkans reveals the full extent of this challenge, as well as the grounds for hope. Rich in detail and penetrating analysis, this book will be essential reading for anyone interested in the future both of the region and of Europe as a whole.
