This title was first published in 2001. Kosovo: From Crisis to Crisis deals with the main features of the most recent crisis, leading up to operation Allied Force. It provides an excellent analysis of all major aspects of NATO’s intervention and it discusses the current problems with the implementation of the settlement. Until recently, Kosovo was a rather unknown territory in a far-away corner of Europe. The Serbian-Albanian armed conflict, NATO's intervention and the following struggle by the international community to rebuild this area has turned Kosovo into terra cognita for diplomats, politicians, the military, aid workers and the public. Essential reading for political scientists with special interest in ethnic and conflict studies.


’Many books have been published on the Kosovo crisis over the past but this is one of the most useful, and most reliable. Dick Leurdijk and Dick Zandee are both acknowledged experts on the Balkans who also have direct experience of the innermost workings of international diplomacy. Their analysis is thorough, balanced and indispensable to anyone who really wants to understand the origins and development of the Kosovo conflict.’ Jamie Shea, Director of Information and Press, NATO ’…an overall picture of the facts and international aspects of the NATO intervention in Kosovo, now in book form. Such a factual analysis is useful and necessary.’ Netherlands Daily
