A tiny country of just two million people, 90% of whom are ethnic Albanians, Kosovo is central-geographically, historically, and politically-to the future of the Western Balkans and, in turn, its potential future within the European Union. But the fate of both Kosovo, condemned by Serbian leaders as a "fake state" and the region as a whole, remains uncertain. In Kosovo: What Everyone Needs to Know®, Tim Judah provides a straight-forward guide to the complicated place that is Kosovo. Judah, who has spent years covering the region, offers succinct, penetrating answers to a wide range of questions: Why is Kosovo important? Who are the Albanians? Who are the Serbs? Why is Kosovo so important to Serbs? What role does Kosovo play in the region and in the world? Judah reveals how things stand now and presents the history and geopolitical dynamics that have led to it. The most important of these is the question of the right to self-determination, invoked by the Kosovo Albanians, as opposed to right of territorial integrity invoked by the Serbs. For many Serbs, Kosovo's declaration of independence and subsequent recognition has been traumatic, a savage blow to national pride. Albanians, on the other hand, believe their independence rights an historical wrong: the Serbian conquest (Serbs say "liberation") of Kosovo in 1912.For anyone wishing to understand both the history and possible future of Kosovo at this pivotal moment in its history, this book offers a wealth of insight and information in a uniquely accessible format.What Everyone Needs to Know® is a registered trademark of Oxford University Press.

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!

Having served in both Bosnia and Kosovo for NATO i enjoyed the book and learned some things while clarifying other things
MrDog
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.
Siramath

I expected to find more about everyday life in Kosovo.
Tansino
Excellent book, very historical and insightful.
