This book is about various instances of western decision-making without much thought about the future implications of these decisions on Southeastern Europe. Recognition of the break-away states from Yugoslavia, Greece’s policy vis a vis FYROM in the early nineties and the bombing of FRY in 1999, are three such cases. This author argues that the collapse of state authorities, the spreading of criminality and economic stagnation, are now the most formidable problems of the western Balkans.
