Exactly what is a “Traveller's History”? No explanation is offered, but the designation probably explains why there are no footnote or endnote references such as one would expect in “A Scholar's History.” At the end of the book, there is a list of twenty books of “Further Reading,” all in English. There is, however, a “Historical Gazetteer” with descriptions of 26 important cities and page references to where they are mentioned. A list of ruler's is also helpful. I would have liked more references, but the book should be judged by what it set out to do.
The author's treatment of the wars of the 1990s is even-handed. They realized the aspirations of the Croats over 900 years for independence, yet they also undoubtedly involved war crimes on all sides.
The author is a good story teller; I found not a dull page.
