Our deal this week is Conversations with Milošević by Sir Ivor Roberts, a first hand portrayal of the so-called Butcher of the Balkans, the Serbian president whose ambitions sparked the Bosnian conflict. Roberts worked in the British Diplomatic Service for nearly forty years and was serving as the British Ambassador at Belgrade during the Bosnian civil war and the descent into war in Kosovo. At its heart this book is a portrait of an autocrat who rode the tiger of nationalism to serve his own ends and to promote those who furthered his agenda.

This is not only a truly valuable addition to the literature on the breakup of Yugoslavia, it is also an incredibly interesting read. Sir Ivor Roberts was one of the few Western officials with sustained close-up interaction with Milošević, as well as with other leading Serbian and international personalities involved at the time. It is a fascinating account of Roberts’s time in Belgrade, full of anecdotes and character portraits.”

“This intriguing and informative book will serve not only as an explanation of why Yugoslavia disintegrated, and why it did so with such violence, but it will also open areas of debate on those processes which will be of interest and value to historians, as well as students of politics and international relations.”
—RICHARD CRAMPTON, Emeritus Professor of East European History, St. Edmunds Hall, University of Oxford
