"Engaging, theoretically sophisticated, and ethnographically detailed... Makes a very complicated period of Balkan history admirably clear." Loring M. Danforth, Bates College "This book is, to my mind, exactly the kind of work that needs to be done in order to understand civil wars, insurgencies, nationalism, and rebellions, and to get away from what the author rightfully critiques as 'pidgin social science.'" Chip Gagnon, Ithaca College
