The Kosovo Crisis: The Last American War in Europe?

Reuters, 2001 - 316 páginas
Kosovo saw the last European war of the twentieth century, the first fought by a NATO force, and possibly the end of America's direct involvement in European military affairs. This book explains how Kosovo came to be 'the crucible of a poisonous ethnic struggle' and examines the implications of the international response.*A unique presentation of the events by nine specialist writers makes this the only book of such scope and international dimension available on the Kosovo crisis. *Sets out the causes, chronicles the events and evaluates the motivation of the major participants in the conflict in a manner unattempted since the hostilities ended. *Multi-disciplinary in nature, the book establishes a link between politics and media. *Presents a close examination of the respective international responses and provides provocative, original and informed conclusions. *Includes analysis of German and Italian positions in NATO allowing students to examine the lesser known policies of these countries. *Presents a coherent post-Cold War interpretation of events of great importance to Europe, NATO and the USA. *Presents a view which underlines the need for a new foreign policy for the EU, par
