Product Description:
Serbia, a landlocked country at the crossroads of Central and Southeastern Europe, covers the southern part of the Pannonian plain and the central part of the Balkans. The dominant power in the former Yugoslavia, it has had a bad press in the West. However, the truth is much more nuanced and interesting than that portrayed by the media. Serbia is a country with wonderful scenery, architectural riches, and a vibrant arts scene, waiting to be discovered by Westerners.   Serbs are proud, passionate, and generous people with an independent streak. They have always had to fight for survival, first against the Ottoman Turks and then against the Habsburg Empire. Following the First World War, they took the lead in forming independent Yugoslavia. They resisted Hitler heroically. Under Tito’s rule Yugoslavia steered an independent course. After his death the multinational state disintegrated amid bitter conflict. The war over the secession of the province of Kosovo saw Serbia bombed by NATO forces for two and a half months. The Serbian people’s reaction to their hardline Communist regime was the Bulldozer Revolution—a campaign of civil resistance that returned the country to democracy in 2000.   Against this turbulent backdrop, the visitor to Serbia needs to be well informed and sensitive to people’s feelings. Culture Smart! Serbia introduces you to a diverse, complex, and dynamic society. It offers background information on Serbian history and customs, and essential advice on what to expect and how to behave in different circumstances. If you show interest and respect, you will receive a warm welcome and lasting loyalty in return.

‘Perhaps the greatest attraction of all, considering the long years of isolation, is the welcome the visitor can expect to receive,’ writes Serbia author Laurence Mitchell. This guide helps visitors explore one of southeast Europe’s most exciting destinations with unrivalled information on all aspects of the country’s vibrant cultural life. In this unique guide, Laurence Mitchell leads travellers to rural monasteries, tranquil national parks and hip nightclubs. Here traditional folk customs, swinging summer festivals and cost eateries are all ingredients in the country’s cultural melting pot. This fully revised third edition provides fresh information, which will appeal to business visitors, adventure travellers and those with art, history and wildlife interests. As a prime destination for winter sports, mountain resorts – as well as a range of health spas in spectacular settings – are covered. Raise a glass of belo vino and toast Serbia’s reawakening. New to tourism, but determined to show the world all its attributes: delicious food, beautiful countryside, friendly people, low prices, good music – including the acclaimed EXIT festival, safe travel and excellent city nightlife. The scars of war have faded and visitors can certainly expect a warm welcome.

Product Description:

From the assassination that triggered World War I to the ethnic warfare in Serbia, Bosnia, and Croatia, the Balkans have been the crucible of the twentieth century, the place where terrorism and genocide first became tools of policy. Chosen as one of the Best Books of the Year by The New York Times, and greeted with critical acclaim as "the most insightful and timely work on the Balkans to date" (The Boston Globe), Kaplan's prescient, enthralling, and often chilling political travelogue is already a modern classic.

This new edition of the Balkan Ghosts includes six opinion pieces written by Robert Kaplan about the Balkans between 1996 and 2000 beginning just after the implementation of the Dayton Peace Accords and ending after the conclusion of the Kosovo war, with the removal of Slobodan Milosevic from power.
