Bosnia and Hercegovina
A Tradition BetrayedBook - 1994
This book examines Bosnia's rich historical traditions in light of the conflict that erupted there in 1992. The authors explain the origins of Bosnia's major ethnonational groups in the religious conversions of the Middle Ages and under the Ottomans as a prelude to the transformation of its principal religious communities into twentieth-century nationalities. The roles of Bosnia's Muslims, Serbs, and Croats in the events affecting the Yugoslav peoples in the twentieth century and then as Yugoslavia disintegrated in the early 1990s are vividly presented.
