     In a Bosnian Trench: A Wartime Memoir of a Muslim Bosnian Soldier
Publisher: Trafford Publishing
Author(s): Elvir Kulin

Elvir Kulin was a quiet, shy teenager living in Hrasnica, a settlement next to Sarajevo. He worked in his sister's grocery store and studied to be an English teacher. Then the war came. The grocery store closed, and shells rained on his settlement. He saw some of his neighbors die from shrapnel wounds and witnessed UN troops allowing Serbian soldiers to kill 11 Bosnian civilians at the Sarajevo Airport. With only a week's training, Kulin was sent to the front line and was shelled and shot at on his first day because a fellow soldier yelled insults at Serbian soldiers across a minefield.

This book is about all these occurrences and more. It is the memoir of Elvir Kulin, a young Muslim Bosnian soldier, who fought for three years in the war in Bosnia.

     Bosnia and Hercegovina: A Tradition Betrayed
Publisher: Columbia University Press
Author(s): Robert J. Donia, John V. A. Fine Jr.

In "Bosnia and Hercegovina: A Tradition Betrayed, " Donia and Fine Shatter the myth that the former Yugoslavia has been plunged into civil strife by the end of the Cold War. To prove this point they examine Bosnia's rich historical traditions in light of the conflict that erupted there in 1992. The authors explain the origins of Bosnia's major ethnonational groups in the religious conversions of the Middle Ages and under the Ottomans as a prelude to the transformation of its principal religious communities into twentieth-century nationalities.

Taking issue with the widespread perception that ancient rivalries and primordial ethnic hatreds among the Serbs, Muslims, and Croats are behind the tragedies occurring today, "Bosnia and Hercegovina" emphasizes instead the rich tradition of diversity, pluralism, and toleration that has developed over centuries and flourished until very recently.

     A Short History of the Yugoslav Peoples
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Author(s): Fred Singleton

There are few countries in Europe which contain within an area as small as the British Isles such a variety of natural environments and cultures as Yugoslavia. This book provides a survey of the history of the South Slav peoples who came together at the end of the First World War to form the first Yugoslav kingdom, and who emerged from the chaos of the Second World War to become citizens of a socialist federal republic, led by the Communist Party under the leadership of Marshal Tito. Beginning in Roman times, the book traces the rise and fall of the medieval Slav principalities, the dominance of the Ottoman and Habsburg empires, the proclamation of the kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes in 1918, the disastrous effects of the German occupation and the creation of a new socialist order under President Tito.

     The Cathars: The Most Successful Heresy of the Middle Ages
Publisher: Thunder's Mouth Press
Author(s): Sean Martin

Without lifting a sword, the Cathars posed a threat to Catholicism greater than the Muslims or Jews?or so the Church believed. The Cathars believed that matter was essentially evil?especially the human body?and that the material world had to be transcended through a simple life of prayer, work, fasting, and nonviolence. Though they radically departed from certain traditional Christian beliefs, the Cathars still believed themselves to be the heirs of the true heritage of Christianity. They completely rejected the Catholic Church and all its opulent trappings, regarding it as the Church of Satan; Cathar services and ceremonies, by contrast, were held in fields, barns, and people's homes.

The Cathars found widespread popularity among peasants and artisans. They respected women, who played a major role in the movement. Alarmed at the success of Catharism, the Church began the Inquisition and launched the Albigensian Crusade to exterminate the heresy. The Albigensian Crusade was the first Crusade to be directed against fellow Christians and was also the first European genocide. Today, the mystique surrounding the Cathars is as strong as ever. Their myths and complete history are examined here in The Cathars?the compelling true story of this once peaceful religious sect.

     Banner: Webster's Timeline History, 7000 BC - 1956
Publisher: ICON Group International, Inc.
Author(s): Icon Group International

Webster's bibliographic and event-based timelines are comprehensive in scope, covering virtually all topics, geographic locations and people. They do so from a linguistic point of view, and in the case of this book, the focus is on "Banner," including when used in literature (e.g. all authors that might have Banner in their name). As such, this book represents the largest compilation of timeline events associated with Banner when it is used in proper noun form. Webster's timelines cover bibliographic citations, patented inventions, as well as non-conventional and alternative meanings which capture ambiguities in usage. These furthermore cover all parts of speech (possessive, institutional usage, geographic usage) and contexts, including pop culture, the arts, social sciences (linguistics, history, geography, economics, sociology, political science), business, computer science, literature, law, medicine, psychology, mathematics, chemistry, physics, biology and other physical sciences. This "data dump" results in a comprehensive set of entries for a bibliographic and/or event-based timeline on the proper name Banner, since editorial decisions to include or exclude events is purely a linguistic process. The resulting entries are used under license or with permission, used under "fair use" conditions, used in agreement with the original authors, or are in the public domain.

     Stone Speaker: Medieval Tombs, Landscape, and Bosnian Identity in the Poetry of Mak Dizdar
Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan
Author(s): Amila Buturovic

The poet Mak Dizdar has become a cultural icon in contemporary Bosnia-Herzegovina. Inspired by the lapidary imagery and epitaphs of medieval Bosnian tombstones, his best-acclaimed collection of poetry, Stone Sleeper, reawakens the medieval voices in the historical imagination of contemporary Bosnians. Amila Buturovic looks at Stone Sleeper 's recovery of the ancestral world as an effort to refashion the sentiments of collective belonging. In treating the medieval tombstones as sites of collective memory, Dizdar?s poetry evokes new possibilities for Bosnians to cast aside national differences based on religion and embrace a pluralistic identity rooted in the sacred landscape of medieval Bosnia. The book includes a bilingual appendix of Dizdar's poetry with an introduction by the translator, Francis Jones.

     Historical Dictionary of Croatia (Historical Dictionaries of Europe)
Publisher: Scarecrow Press
Author(s): Robert Stallaerts

Croatia, a former republic of Yugoslavia, has been a self-declared independent state since July 25, 1991. To its own people, however, it is a much older country that is finally getting another chance to forge a nation. The Croats trace their roots back many centuries, and the depth of this resurgent nationalism helps explain why Yugoslavia split as it did and where it did. As Croatia and its people try to make a success of their new state, they can take hope in the notable progress that has already been made in regards to its economic restructuring, democratization, and a rapprochement with their neighbors and Europe more broadly.

The third edition of the Historical Dictionary of Croatia relates the history of this country through a detailed chronology, an introduction, a bibliography, and cross-referenced dictionary entries on significant persons, places, and events; institutions and organizations; and political, economic, social, cultural, and religious facets.
