Journalist Timothy Judah witnessed first-hand many of the most horrifying episodes of the war in the former Yugoslavia while on assignment from 1990-1995. Here he examines the history of the Serbs from medieval times to the present, combining a gripping personal description of the war with a skillful analysis of the historical and cultural context out of which it emerged. Timothy Judah was Balkans correspondent for the London Times and the Economist, reporting from Romania, Bulgaria, Albania, and the former Yugoslavia. He is now a freelance writer based in London.
