Demonstrates that foreign intervention alone will be insufficient to bring about peace in Kosovo and the surrounding region.
A sharp critique of the conflict in Kosovo scrutinizing not only Milosevic and Akran but NATO and the Western Alliance. Rezun (political science, U. of New Brunswick) constructed the book with information gained by personal travels to the region, and interviews with statesmen and refugees there; and from documentation in several European languages. He uses this data to reveal the atrocities of the Serbs and the foibles of the practice of limited war. The text includes several b&w photographs, and is written primarily for a scholarly audience.
