A Bosnian Primer

The conflict in Bosnia is widely held to be set upon centuries of hostility between Serbs and Muslims. Another popular notion is that Russia's solidarity with Serbs is based on a deep feeling of pan-Slavic unity. John Lampe, director of the East European Studies Program for the Woodrow Wilson Center, challenges these and other popular notions and provides his views of the principles that are really at stake.
