In opposition to many powerful figures in France, Alain Finkielkraut has largely supported the Croatian struggles for sovereignty. He argues against an array of outmoded views of the Balkan region and its political and cultural conditions - conceptions that date back to earlier in the century and that have long bedeviled the region and the European powers' relation to it. The book takes up larger issues about European political and intellectual history - issues that are in urgent need of reexamination and revision in the post-Cold War world."--Jacket." ;
