'The Serbs' was published in hardcover in 1997, and paperbacked in 1998. It was reissued as a NB paperback in 2000, and reprinted regularly since then. There is a lot to catch-up on in this second edition. It covers the Kosovo War, and the overthrow of Milosevic, with close-up accounts of his trial at the Hague, and subsequent death. It looks at the assassination of Serbian Prime Minister Zoran Djindic in 2003, and its consequences. It deals with Montenegro's plebiscite in favour of independence in May 2006, and subsequent dissolution of the Union of Serbia and Montenegro, and re-emergence of Serbia as an independent state, under its own name, later that year. It also covers the unilateral proclamation of independence by Kosovo in February 2008, its recognition by most western countries and its opposition by Russia, China and Spain. And it provides an inside account of the identification and arrest of Radovan Karadzic in July 2008 and indictment on charges of genocide at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, which is ongoing. Ratko Mladic, the 'butcher of Serbia' of course remains in hiding.

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.
