About this book

This book examines how the war crime legacy resulting from the Yugoslav war of the 1990s on political and military transformation in Serbia was an impediment to security reform, democratization and the achievement of Western standards in the Belgrade armed forces.

Reviews

"It is very gratifying to see such a scholarly, insightful, instructive and, above all, interesting study of the truly complex web of issues involving security, democracy, war crimes and reform of national security and defence organisations, which has been so crucial to the stable development of modern Serbia. However, the real importance of this book is its timeliness and relevance, for these issues are becoming equally crucial in Egypt, Syria, Tunisia and Libya, and will become so in other countries engulfed by the 'Arab Spring'. It is to be hoped that those involved in trying to find long-term solutions to the problems of today's Middle East and North Africa can learn the lessons which this book has to teach." - Chris Donnelly, Director of The Institute for Statecraft
