About the Author:

Paul Mojzes is Chair of the Religious Studies and Humanities Department at Rosemont College, Pennsylvania, USA.

From Booklist:

Mojzes was born in Croatia and raised by Methodist minister parents in the semiautonomous Serbian state of Vojvodina; he and his wife moved to the United States in the late 1950s. In analyzing the horrors that have replaced Communism in the former Yugoslavia, Mojzes draws on interviews he conducted during recent trips to the Balkans as well as scholarly monographs and journalistic reports in English. The author's particular concern is the role of religion and religious leaders in aggravating the conflict, but he also offers a generally even handed account of the "mytho-history" of the nationalities contending in the former Yugoslavia; probes the roots of the disaster; assesses blame; weighs alternative outcomes with and without foreign military intervention; and proposes what he calls "coercive diplomacy." Ecumenical as Mojzes strives to be, he was unable to travel into Bosnia on his recent trips, and his analysis of the former Yugoslavia's Muslims is perhaps the weakest of his six ethnic profiles. Still, Yugoslavian Inferno brings into focus issues muddied by the propaganda of various sides, and it demands that the world's leading powers recognize the complexities any long-term solution must address. Mary Carroll
