'Entertaining and timely ... Barnett makes good use of Tito's official memoirs and recorded recollections ... While allowing the regime to speak with its own voice, Barnett also points out the fabrications, where ideological lessons upstaged factual accuracy.' -- Neil MacDonald The Financial Times 'Neil Barnett's engaging and elegant biography is an invaluable resource for diplomats, aid workers and peacekeepers who want to understand better the enigmatic statesman who bequeathed so many vexing national and territorial questions.' -- John Phillips The Tablet
