For 25 days in May and June 1999, Scott Taylor reported on the NATO air campaign from inside Yugoslavia. As one of the few western journalists to be granted such access, Taylor was able to gain a unique perspective to the Kosovo conflict -- the Serbian side. He returned in November 1999 to do a follow-up study on the war's aftermath.

Through Taylor's observations, INAT covers the zenith of the NATO air raids: the on-again, off-again peace talks, Russia's sudden race into Kosovo, the NATO (KFOR) deployment, the retreat of the Yugoslav Army, the flight of the Serbian refugees, and the bitter aftermath of the war on a bomb-ravaged Serbia.

Inat is a Serbian noun which does not directly translate into English, but roughly means "regardless of the consequences." Far from being just a simple word, inat is best described as a spirit which is embodied in the psyche of the Serbian people.

Review:

Scott Taylor has authored an interesting and informative counterweight to NATO's "spin" on the Kosovo conflict... An unvarnished account of being at the receiving end of NATO's fury. -- Major General (ret'd) Lewis MacKenzie

The story of the Kosovo war and the Balkans that the media missed, and how [the Canadian] government still doesn't understand how they've actually made the situation worse. -- Peter Worthington, editor emeritus, Toronto Sun
