Journalist Tim Judah’s classic account, now brought fully up to date to include the overthrow of Miloševic, the assassination of Zoran Djindic, the breakaway of Kosovo, and the arrest of Radovan Karadžic.

Praise for the first edition:

"A lively and balanced history of the Serbs."Aleksa Djilas,New York Times Book Review

"Judah writes splendidly. . . .The story he tells does much to explain both the Serb obsession with the treachery of outsiders and their quasi-religious faith in the eventual founding, or rather reestablishment, of the Serbian state."Mark Danner, New York Review of Books

"Judah's book is probably the best attempt to date to explain the calamitous situation of the Serbs today through a meticulous consideration of the Serb past."David Rieff,Toronto Globe and Mail

Tim Judah was Balkans correspondent for the London Times and theEconomist, and has been a frequent contributor The New York Review of Books.
