The bloody break-up of the former Yugoslavia and the region's wider struggles with a post-Communist transition suggest continuing Balkan burdens for the peoples and states of Southeastern Europe. Ethnic conflict, disputed borders, forced migration and foreign intervention had already scarred the countries from Romania south to Greece during the decades surrounding the two world wars. John Lampe disputes this pejoratively Balkan background. He traces the region's traumatic twentieth century through wars and postwar transitions that adopted or confronted European ideologies, institutions and interventions.

"When the Berlin Wall fell, South-Eastern Europe merged once again with a distinct identity of its own. It is the great achievement of this erudite comparative study--written by a scholar who is at home with the culture of the region as its economy--to explore the shared problems of the region in the years before the Second World War, and to see positive developments emerging from the bloody experience of post-communist transition."--Geoffrey Swain, University of the West of England
