This book is unfortunately a piece of advocacy. I expected something more objective and critical, and definitely less categorical. The author throughout makes black-and-white characterizations of governments, people, and events in Kosovo and elsewhere, the icing on the cake being "Iran's drive to become a nuclear-armed state under the control of Jew-hating religious fundamentalists." The author's account of meetings and conversations were interesting, but his bias prevented me from finishing the book.

This book has some incredibly relevant lessons for modern foreign policy to learn. Reading his sections on the Western democratic world sitting on the sidelines of history as inhabitants of the Balkans attempted to exterminate one another made me think of the current conflict in Iraq and Syria. Will we once again sit on the sidelines and let a ravaging horde kill, rape and destroy while "hoping" that it will all just stop or that the regional powers will intervene? This book would suggest that such passiveness will lead nowhere good. Kosovo still matters because the lesson of coming to the aid of a humanitarian crisis with military force still appears relevant unless we want to see another Srebrenica. The author comes across as a bit boastful of British intervention in Kosovo, but given his background it is a bias that one can easily mitigate.@

I am preparing to travel to Kosovo next year and found that reading and getting an understanding of their past will serve me better during my time there. Thanks very informative book.

Format: Paperback
'Why Kosovo still matters" is a good book with good intentions. Its written by an author who is clearly one of the most active advocated of Europan integration for all Balkan countries, Serbia and Kosovo included. The book has interesting historic observations from MacShane's diary entries as well as more contemporary analysis of the present conundrum of Kosovo's recognition as an independent state. MacShane writes convincingly that EU cannot hope to develop a coherent foreign policy on bigger international issues, if it doesn't menage to find an unified voice on a country in the midst of Europe.
