A bomb blast in front of the author’s apartment in Turkey and a diplomatic dinner in Washington illustrate the dangers and colorful history of the Balkan region of Europe. No area has experienced the ebb and flow of great powers important to the history of Western civilization more than the Balkans. The victorious nations in Paris created Yugoslavia after World War I. But decades later, when the Soviet Empire in Eastern Europe disintegrated after 1989, Yugoslavia began to split apart in a sequence of ethnic independence movements.

Keywords:   Balkans, Western civilization, World War I, Yugoslavia, Soviet, 1989
