Short wars can cast long shadows. That the Balkan wars did so is amply proved in this impressive collection of essays by distinguished scholars from a large variety of countries. They show not only that the internal dynamics of that troubled peninsula are still conditioned by the events of 1912–13, but also that these events affected the operation of international agencies dealing with the area and its problems. The book will be of great value to anyone concerned with or interested in the Balkans.
