Slobodan Milosevic on trial: a companion.

Scharf, Michael P. and Schabas, William A. ORCID logoORCID: (2002) Slobodan Milosevic on trial: a companion. Continuum. ISBN 9780826414113. [Book]


From 1991 to 1999, Slobodan Milosevic launched and ultimately lost four Balkan wars, resulting in the deaths of hundreds of thousands and the displacement of millions. He saw himself as a modern day Abraham Lincoln, employing force in a valiant effort to hold his crumbling Yugoslavia together. But his tactics included systematic war crimes and ethnic cleansing, ultimately prompting the US and its NATO allies to launch a controversial military intervention in the spring of 1999 to halt the bloodshed. Written while Milosevic sat in a tiny jail cell in The Hague, awaiting the start of his trial before the UN-created International War Crimes Tribunal, this book is designed for anyone who wants to know more about the historic, unprecedented and complex trial of the first former head of state ever to face international justice.
