A Politics of Sorrow PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

A Politics of Sorrow free pdf The ongoing Yugoslav drama and the Balkan tragedy is a story of crimes committed with extraordinary boldness and deception, propagated by the politicians and by the media from both inside, and outside, the former Yugoslavia. This mixture, at the heart of the conflict, provoked the greatest humanitarian catastrophe in Europe since the Second World War. Once famous for its hospitality and cultural diversity, Yugoslavia was a well-loved tourist destination - a peaceful nation of six republics coexisting in mutual respect. What, then, went wrong? In contrast to the widespread media representation of bloody internal divisions and wars among the belligerent Balkan tribes, A Politics Of Sorrow argues that one must also look to the socio-economic and political crisis that emerged primarily as a consequence of the New World Order and its "dictate of the free market" to fully understand the causes of the conflict.
