Told for the first time, the riveting story of how common people - miners, cooks, former soldiers - shook off the intimidation of Serbian strongman Slobadan Milosevic and overthrew, peacefully, his tyrannical regime. Based on numerous interviews with participants, from the man in the street to top officials in the Serbian regime, The Fall of Milosevic recounts the exhilaration, fear and chaos of a population rising in opposition to a tyrant, the 'Butcher of the Balkans'. As the people gather in protest, behind the scenes in the pillars of Milosevic's regime crumble as politicians, military officers, and the police desert a leader no longer legitimate in the eyes of the people. This is the story of individuals facing down fear and rising up for democracy.

About the Author:

DRAGAN BUJOSEVIC, one of the foremost journalists in Serbia, is now deputy editor in chief of NIN, a leading news magazine and is host of a television political talk show in Belgrade.

IVAN RADOVANOVIC is a journalist who reported on Serbia's various wars in the Balkans. He is also a novelist and the education coordinator for journalists in the Media Centre in Belgrade.

Review:

"Their vivid, fast-paced account gives a good sense of the chaos and excitement..." - Marcia L. Sprules, Library Journal

"A fascinating, truly pioneering account of the political and human drama that took in place on October 5, 2000 in Belgrade. Based on interviews with numerous participants, the authors reconstitute countless actions and reactions that explain how an apparently immutable

dictatorship perished. Required reading for all those who want to understand how human freedom can prevail over tyranny."

- Vladimir Tismaneanu, Political Science, University of Maryland and author of Stalinism for All Seasons: A Political History of Romanian Communism

"The Fall of Milosevic gives a vivid, first-person account of the remarkable events - a mix of careful planning, courage, and luck on the part of the demonstrators, together with defections by police and military - that finally brought down Milosevic's hated rule. This minute-by-minute narrative gives the reader an uncanny sense of what it was like to be on the street with the demonstrators, their confusion and elation, missing only the whiff of tear gas." - Louis Sell, retired US diplomat with many years experience in the former Yugoslavia and author of Slobodan Milosevic and the Destruction of Yugoslavia

"Gripping, inside stuff....fascinating" - The Economist
