9780810850842: Historical Dictionary of Bosnia and Herzegovina (Historical Dictionaries of Europe)

Diversity has always been at the heart of Bosnia and Herzegovina's character; even its dual name and physical geography display a particular heterogeneity. The medieval Bosnian state never enjoyed lasting political and ideological unity as its feudal, regional, and religious rifts pulled at the country's seams. Furthermore, because of its location and by a quirk of history, three major world religious and cultural traditions (Catholicism, Islam, and Orthodoxy) became cohabitants in this small Balkan country. Recently, the rebirth of its statehood has been exceptionally bloody and its diversity has been shaken. Even eleven years after the guns were silenced, the country is still under the "benevolent" protection of the international community, whose officials are keeping the state-building process in perpetual suspense, with no final result in sight.

The second edition of the Historical Dictionary of Bosnia and Herzegovina sheds light on the uncertain situation Bosnia and Herzegovina faces, while providing essential background information. This is accomplished through a chronology, an introduction, a bibliography, and more than 300 cross-referenced dictionary entries on individual topics spanning Bosnia and Herzegovina's political, economic, religious, and social system along with short biographies on important figures.

About the Author:

Ante Cuvalo currently teaches at Joliet Junior College. He has authored three books and many articles dealing with Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, and the former Yugoslavia.

Review:

Cuvalo...treats his complex subject with breadth, depth, and clarity....This is recommended for all academic libraries. (Library Journal)

This work delivers much more than the title indicates. It will be of use for anyone doing research on either of these countries during any time period. (American Reference Books Annual)

Provides entries on about 350 topics in Bosnia and Herzegovina's history, including its political, economic, religious, and social systems, events, and culture, with biographies of key figures. The entries are preceded by a historical introduction, and a chronology and an extensive bibliography are included. (Reference and Research Book News)

A competant reference work packed with esoteric names and facts about a region of which we know little....A useful acquisition. (Reference Reviews)

Ante Cuvalo’s Historical Dictionary of Bosnia and Herzegovina is a serious piece of work by a scholar who knows his subject matte. It comprises a useful tool for both a specialist in, and a beginner to the study of Bosnia and Herzegovina....The summaries are generally of a high quality, and even the expert on Bosnian history will likely be able to glean useful information from them....if the reader should find an entry for what interests them in the dictionary, they are likely to be satisfied....The structure is a good one, rendering the book accessible and convenient as a reference work....In sum, Cuvalo’s historical dictionary is to be highly recommended.
