That book is definitely not about loving your neighbor. It’s about the Balkan wars. I highly recommend it though.

The Breakup of Yugoslavia and Its Aftermath

Love Thy Neighbor: A Story of War --This is not really a history book per se, but a book written about a journalists experiences and research during his time on the ground in the Yugoslav wars. Incredible read, but also heartbreaking. Should be required reading in school.

The Fragmentation of Yugoslavia: Nationalism and War in the Balkans

A Politics of Sorrow: The Disintegration of Yugoslavia -- Perhaps take this one with a grain of salt, but I think it brings up issues which are often missing from accounts of the Balkan wars and is very worth reading.

The Road to War in Serbia: Trauma and Catharsis

Related but not really a history book:

Safe Area Gorazde -- Graphic novel journalism, really incredibly done. One of the more unique pieces of literature on the topic. Would recommend for anyone.


Most of this stuff should be available to you if you have access to a university library, with the exception of Safe Area Gorazde which I think is worth buying.

Interesting and important article: Botching the Balkans: Germany's Recognition of Slovenia and Croatia.

I read this after my deployment to Bosnia. It's called Love Thy Neighbor by Peter Maas, and from what I remember it was quite good.
It was nonfiction...i'm not sure what type of book you're going for.

Love Thy Neighbor is a good place to start.

I read that book in a college class on genocide; thank you for reminding me of it! I agree, it is a wonderful book. Interesting comparison to World War Z. Have you read Love Thy Neighbour by Peter Maas? It's about the war in the Balkans in the 1990s -- similar in subject matter to Gourevitch's book, I can't recommend it highly enough.
