The two best sections were at the beginning and the end. The first couple of essays are the two title pieces - "If There Had Been No 'Storm' [Da Nije Bilo Oluje]" and "Who Saved Bosnia?" which make the case that, whatever Croatia's previous or subsequent errors, the 'Storm' offensive by the Croatian army of August 1995 effectively ended the war on terms that Bosnia could live with.
I was less grabbed by the middle sections, a large number of pieces attacking the International War Crimes Tribunal in the Hague and also arguing that Croatia ought to be given a free pass to EU and NATO integration. These issues will be of historical interest only very soon (as ICTY closes and as EU accession talks near completion), but the pieces rather demonstrate how little even the best-informed observers from the region grasped what was really going on with the international community's strategy. There are also a couple of pieces about that perennial chestnut, Bosnian constitutional reform.
But the final essays are back on form, looking at trade integration for the Balkan states, both with each other and with the EU, and also proposing rather cheekily that the Kosovo diaspora should simply purchase their homeland from Serbia. The book won't be on any best-seller lists but I'm glad to have it on my shelves.
