Kosovo Crossing: The Reality of American Intervention in the Balkans by David Fromkin


pdf epub fb2 djvu



In Kosovo Crossing, bestselling historian David Fromkin examines the clash between American ideals and Balkan realities on the battlefields of Kosovo. Leading NATO into the first war of its fifty-year existence, America sought to carve out a new role both for the alliance and for itself by establishing a world order. Yet like the other crises of the late twentieth century -- in Iraq, Bosnia, Somalia, Haiti, and Rwanda -- this war, in a land long plagued by deadly conflict, revealed the limits of America's power to reshape the world. Brilliantly weaving military, political, and historical analysis, Fromkin forges a new understanding of the paths that American leaders must explore to advance American values abroad.
