Black Lamb and Grey Falcon : A Journey Through Yugoslavia (Twentieth-Century Classics)
by Rebecca West 
Part travelogue, part history, part love letter on a thousand-page scale, Rebecca West's Black Lamb and Grey Falcon is a genre-bending masterwork written in elegant prose. But what makes it so unlikely to be confused with any other book of history, politics, or culture--with, in fact, any other book--is its unashamed depth of feeling: think The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire crossed with Let Us Now Praise Famous Men. West visited Yugoslavia for the first time in 1936. What she saw there affected her so much that she had to return--partly, she writes, because it most resembled "the country I have always seen between sleeping and waking," and partly because "it was like picking up a strand of wool that would lead me out of a labyrinth in which, to my surprise, I had found myself immured." Black Lamb is the chronicle of her travels, but above all it is West following that strand of wool: through countless historical digressions; through winding narratives of battles, slavery, and assassinations; through Shakespeare and Augustine and into the very heart of human frailty. 

West wrote on the brink of World War II, when she was "already convinced of the inevitability of the second Anglo-German war." The resulting book is colored by that impending conflict, and by West's search for universals amid the complex particulars of Balkan history. In the end, she saw the region's doom--and our own--in a double infatuation with sacrifice, the "black lamb and grey falcon" of her title. It's the story of Abraham and Isaac without the last-minute reprieve: those who hate are all too ready to martyr the innocent in order to procure their own advantage, and the innocent themselves are all too eager to be martyred. To West, in 1941, "the whole world is a vast Kossovo, an abominable blood-logged plain." Unfortunately, little has happened since then to prove her wrong. --Mary Park - Amazon.com

To Kill a Nation: The Attack on Yugoslavia

The Fall of Yugoslavia : The Third Balkan War

The Serbs : History, Myth and the Destruction of Yugoslavia
by Timothy Judah

My Father, the Prince
by Milena Petrovic-Njegos Thompson
Book Description: This timely biography of Prince Milo of Montenegro and the betrayal of his country imparts new meaning to today's Yugoslavian headlines. 

Written by Prince Milo's only child, Milena, My Father, the Prince paints contrasts of elite Eastern European palatial life at the turn of the century against the chaos, scheming and subterfuge surrounding World War I. 

The prince, His Highness, Prince Milo of Montenegro of the Royal House of Petrovic-Njegoš, meets the reader in Ireland at the age of 78. It is here, in his reunion with his daughter after 39 years, that Milo relates the events of his betrayal and that of his tiny kingdom, Montenegro, now one of Yugoslavia's republics. 

Rivalries, conspiracies, brutalities all have been a part of the Balkan heritage. They still are, as current events attest. With its expose of never-before published accounts of conspiracies against a tiny nation and one man's fight to rectify the unbelievable tragedy, this book represents a neglected chapter of European history.

Tito and the Rise and Fall of Yugoslavia

Yugoslavia As History : Twice There Was a Country
by John R. Lampe (Author)
Book Description: Yugoslavia as History is the first book to examine the bloody demise of the former Yugoslavia in the full light of its history. This new edition of John Lampe's accessible and authoritative history devotes a full new chapter to the tragic ethnic wars that have followed the dissolution of Yugoslavia, first in Croatia and Bosnia, and most recently in Kosovo. John Lampe concentrates on the connection, real and imagined, between these conflicts and the experience of the successor states, the two Yugoslavias and their predecessors.
