Journalist Tim Judah's classic account, now brought fully up to date to include the overthrow of Milosevic, the assassination of Zoran Djindic, the breakaway of Kosovo, and the arrest of Radovan Karadzic. 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 the Economist, and has been a frequent contributor The New York Review of Books.

Review:

'Tim Judah's book is an ambitious and valiant attempt to bring together the real history of the Serbs and the myths and theories in which that history was handed down.' Melanie McDonagh, Evening Standard. 'A stunning new history.' Robert Fisk, Irish Times. 'A very good book... Judah cleverly interprets Serbia's sad present in the light of its past.' Sunday Times. '[Tanner and Judah] bring to bear wide knowledge of Yugoslavia and shared experience of Europe's worst war since 1945. Each gives a good historical survey and an account of the war's causes.' The Economist. 'Judah... offers a highly readable history of the Serbs from medieval times to the present, with judicious comments on the rise of the Kosovo Liberation Army and Nato's bombing campaign. It is one of the best attempts to explain a situation which has baffled the West throughout history.' The Glasgow Herald. 'Readable and stimulating... Judah's book is a polemical attempt to counter the 'demonisation' of the Serbs. But it is far from being a whitewash: with very few exceptions, he successfully walks the tightrope between 'balance' and relativisation.' Brendan Simms, Times Higher Education Supplement. --Evening Standard, Irish Times, Sunday Times, The Economist, Glasgow Herald, Times Higher Education Supplement

About the Author:

Tim Judah has covered developments in Serbia and Kosovo regularly over the past ten years, writing for a range of international papers. He returned to Belgrade for a month late in 2008 to prepare the revisions to 'The Serbs'. His vivid, first-hand account confirms his book as the leading account of events in the Balkans in any language, and a staple for the trade and college markets.
