From School Library Journal

Judah, a correspondent for the Economist who has covered the Balkans during years of great change and upheaval, takes up the daunting challenge of explaining Kosovo's—and its region's—history to a novice reader. His emphasis is on the past 20 years, with enough about earlier years to explain issues that linger. The small state of Kosovo, with its predominantly ethnic Albanian population, declared independence from Serbia earlier this year. The relationship between Albanians and Serbs has been a complex dance of changing allies and hegemons, as well as continuing animosity, with refugee populations frequently stranded on the wrong side of a changed border. Judah does a commendable job of telling the dense story in an understandable fashion. Because the region changes so quickly, an up-to-date history like this is welcome. Readers seeking a more in-depth treatment will be well served by Miranda Vickers's Between Serb and Albanian: A History of Kosovo, now ten years old, or Paul Hockenos's more recent Homeland Calling: Exile Patriotism and the Balkan Wars. Suitable for popular collections.—Marcia L. Sprules, Council on Foreign Relations Lib., New York

Format: Paperback
As can be seen from the reviews, this is not a book everyone will like. It is is hard to follow at times and I am not able to judge its bias. But the author and his research does seem to be fair. My main complaint is the poor quality of the maps. They are almost unreadable. No excuse for such low quality.

Brutally honest and accurate!
But then again, not everyone likes to hear/read the truth, so they go about telling others if they should read this or that book.

This book is a good concise analysis of how Kosovo got to where it is now and why it is important. Definitely a worthwhile read for those supporting the NATO effort there.

Format: Paperback
Tim judah is pro albanian leaving out much detail about the massive hardships of serbs under albanian rule, also leaving out about all genocides albanians commited against the serbs in the 20th century. Tim Judah states that kosovo is 90% ethnic albanian however he does not mention this was accomplished by the large influx of albanians coming into kosovo, their extremly large familys and the butcher and genocide of serbs in kosovo.

This is a book of great importance for those who wish to understand the Balkans, and Kosova in particular. I have gotten more than one copy of this book and often refer to it for my own research and writings. Judah did a great job on this one!

In this brief overview, Tim Judah sketches the history (or rather, a history) of Kosovo, up to the present. Of course, brevity entails tough choices, but surely "everyone needs to know" more about the great-power machinations behind this history than Judah chooses to reveal.
