War Drums Across the Balkans: Yugoslavia 1989 to Today

This JW3 morning course begins on Thursday 22 April. Bookings available through JW3, see their website for details. All welcome to this zoom course of lectures.


This is a pre-course notice: it would be great if everyone could make sure they have a map of Yugoslavia and of the modern Balkans with them for the talks. Atlases and Historical Atlases would be useful as well as maps available to download from the internet.

Alternatively, books on the subjects invariably also contain excellent maps (v.below books marked with a *)
