Today Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Slovenia, and Macedonia are independent nations. Serbia and Montenegro comprise the rump Yugoslavia. Bosnia-Herzegovina (prewar population 4.4 million): Bosnia has the most complex mix of religious traditions among the former Yugoslav republics: 44% Bosniaks (Muslims), 31% Bosnian Serb (Eastern Orthodox), and 17% Bosnian Croat (Roman Catholics). Bosnias Muslims are Slavs who converted to Islam in the 14th and 15th centuries after the Ottoman Empire conquered the region. From World War I until the end of the Cold War, Bosnia was part of the newly created country of Yugoslavia. Bosnia declared independence in March 1992. Serbia (including Kosovo and Vojvodina) (prewar population 9,800,000): This republic is the largest and most populous. 66% are ethnic Serb of traditionally Eastern Orthodox religion. Until 1989, Serbia also had two œautonomous regions,” Kosovo and Vojvodina. Kosovo, bordering Albania, was the historic seat of a traditional Serbian kingdom and the site of the famous Battle of Kosovo in 1389, when the Serbs were conquered by Ottoman forces. Today Kosovos population is 90% ethnic Albanian, most of them Muslims. The Albanians are a pre-Slavic ethnic group speaking a distinct language unrelated to the various forms of Serbo-Croatian spoken throughout the former Yugoslavia.

BOSNIA HERZEGOVINA. Horrific episodes of socalled ethnic cleansing began as the Serbs attempted to clear Bosnia of Muslims and Croats.
BASIC INFO. GEOGRAPHY GOVERNMENT ... PEOPLE It geographic location has placed the region squarely in the midst of European political power struggles for hundreds of years. Racial divisions, made worse by ever-changing borders and religious rivalries: Muslim, Roman Catholic, and Eastern Orthodoxy. While Yugoslavia kept the peace under Marshall Tito (and for a time after his death, as well) the fall of Communism signaled the beginning of the end for the tenuous unity of the area. In 1992, Bosnia and Herzegovina voted for independence, but the military (of Yugoslavia and mostly Serb) refused to recognize this move and began the siege of Sarajevo. Horrific episodes of so-called "ethnic cleansing" began as the Serbs attempted to clear Bosnia of Muslims and Croats. In 1995, a peace accord was finally signed dividing the region into a Serb republic and a Muslim-Croat federation, which would be governed under the same president and legislature. UN peacekeeping have been in the area since 1995.

4. About Bosnia: History
The Bosnian Institute aims to educate people throughout the world about the historyand culture of BosniaHerzegovina, its social, economic, governmental
The Republic of Bosnia-Herzegovina was in many ways the heart of the former Yugoslavia, both geographically and culturally. It was home to 4.36 million people (1991 census figure), 44% of whom declared themselves Bosniak ('Muslim'), 31% Serb and 17% Croat, while there were also significant numbers of Jews, Roma, Albanians, undetermined 'Yugoslavs' and others. The country's ethnic diversity, however, did not entail territorial division, since the different national groups were inextricably intermingled in their geographical distribution (the famous 'leopard skin'), and especially in the urban centres there was a high proportion of mixed marriages. Nor did it entail social separateness, since the component parts developed within a common historical, linguistic and cultural space, giving rise to a specifically Bosnian paradigm of unity within diversity. The Dayton Accords brokered by the United States at the end of 1995 brought an end to the fighting, but left the country divided into two 'entities' - a 'Federation of B-H' in which only Bosniaks and Croats have full constitutional rights, and a 'Republika Srpska' [Serb Republic] in which only Serbs have full rights - loosely joined by a weak central government. This has left an unstable situation in which (despite a massive Nato military presence) most refugees are unable to return to their homes and the country is unable to begin serious material reconstruction and economic growth. Though Bosnia-Herzegovina's future as a single state is assured, the tempo of its recovery continues to depend on the democratic transformation not only of its own internal structures, but crucially also of its neighbours Croatia and Serbia.

More like last month in Bosnia, but there are some moving articles and photographs here. About Bosnia The first inter-ethnic armed clashes had already taken place around Mostar, on February 4, 1992, and the European recognition of Bosnian independence only made matters worse. Bosnia became the centre of one of Europe's blackest memories in modern history as Serbs, Croats, and Muslims all fought to expand or keep their territories within Bosnia, and carve out their own states within a state. By mid-1995, the majority of the country's land area was held by Bosnian ethnic Serbs, who carried out atrocious ethnic cleansing programmes.

6. History Of Bosnia
History The ancient inhabitants of Bosnia and Herzegovina were Illyrianswho overran the northwestern part of the Balkan Peninsula.
History The ancient inhabitants of Bosnia and Herzegovina were Illyrians who overran the
northwestern part of the Balkan Peninsula. Most of the country was included in the Roman province of Dalmatia. Slav settlement began in the latter half of the 6th century. For the next five centuries various parts of the region fell under the rule of Serbs, Croats, Hungarians, Venetians, and the Byzantines. In the 12th century the Hungarian kingdom began to rule the region through a series of "bans," or governors, though Bosnia enjoyed periods of power and independence. In 1322 a Bosnian, Stjepan Kotromanic, was elected ban, and for the rest of the 14th century the Kotromanic
dynasty (especially under Stjepan's nephew, Tvrtko I) expanded Bosnia's territory to include the Serb province of Hum and much of the Adriatic coast. The Ottoman Turks invaded Bosnia in 1386, and after many battles it became a Turkish province in 1463. Hum held out longer under rulers who styled themselves herceg ("duke") of St. Savaa name recalled today in Herzegovina. During the 16th and 17th centuries, Bosnia was an important Turkish outpost in the constant warfare against the Habsburgs and Venice. During this period much of the native population converted to Islam. As the Ottoman Empire was pushed out of Europe, its rule in Bosnia became more onerous, and Muslims and Christians alike grew resentful of interference from Constantinople. At the Congress of Berlin after the Russo-Turkish War of 1877-78, Bosnia and Herzegovina was assigned to Austro-Hungarian occupation, though it was still nominally Turkish. It was annexed to Austria-Hungary in October 1908. A new constitution divided the electorate into three electoral colleges and assigned in each a fixed proportion of seats to the Orthodox, Roman Catholics, and Muslims. This did little to satisfy growing Serb nationalism, and on June 28, 1914, the Austrian archduke Francis Ferdinand was assassinated at Sarajevo by a Bosnian Serb student, Gavrilo

As many as a third of marriages in bosnia before the 199295 civil war were mixed.Ethnic boundaries were blurring. Recent history war and nationalism.
Can you blame history? It is tempting to say that Serbs, Croats and Muslims in Bosnia have been at war because of age-old ethnic hatreds. But it is not true. Picture postcard view, rabid politics: the Bosnian town of Mostar at the turn of the century. The three main groups in what used to be Yugoslavia have long histories - more than one thousand three hundred years for the Serbs and Croats, six hundred for the Muslims. But for most of that time there has been no war and little hatred. Hostility between the groups is modern, born of the same jingoistic nationalism throughout Europe that produced the First World War. There is even a strong argument that violence creates ethnic divisions, rather than the other way round. Violence and the fear of violence forces people to take sides. Children of mixed marriages and people for whom ethnic identity was never a big issue suddenly have to choose. Am I a Serb, in which case the armed men storming down the street outside will leave me alone, or am I a Muslim, in which case they will probably kill me?

    Serbs Origins The Serbs and the Croats were closely-related Slav tribes which moved into the Balkans in the seventh century of the Christian Era, when the area was nominally part of the Byzantine Empire. They gradually converted to Christianity, mostly the Orthodox Christianity of the Empire, and both build up powerful principalities. From the end of the 11th century their history diverged: the Serbs developed an independent kingdom and remained Orthodox Christians while the Croats were absorbed by Hungary and became Roman Catholics. Banja Luka a century ago. The town is now one of two rival power centres in the Bosnian Serb Republic. Ottoman Empire: 500 years of Muslim domination When the Muslim Ottomans expanded their empire into Europe in the 14th century, they defeated the Serbs in 1389 at the Field of the Blackbirds in what is now Kosovo. Serb legend says the Ottomans offered the Serb king, Tsar Lazar, a reward to surrender but he chose the kingdom of heaven over wordly wealth and the betrayal of his nation.

    History of Bosnia-Herzegovina
    Last Updated: 15 November, 2002
    The rich history of Bosnia and Herzegovina demonstrates the uniqueness of a country where four religions (Judaism, Roman Catholicism, Christian Orthodoxy and Islam) have each given their personal mark to the development of a specific civilization, combining the heritage of the Neolithic, Iliric, Classical, Greco-Roman and Slavic cultural elements. Mutual influences and the unity of those cultural and natural values on a relatively small geographic area, resulted in the specific political, economic, cultural and international character of Bosnia and Herzegovina throughout history.
    Xth Century
    The State of Bosnia first appeared in the Xth Century. At that time Bosnia extended from the Drina river to the Adriatic sea. The socio-legal position of Bosnia in the Medieval period was challenged by Byzantium, Hungary and the neighboring states of Croatia and Serbia who tried to take Bosnian territory to expand Catholicism and Christian Orthodoxy. During the reign of Kulin Ban (1180-1204), Bosnia was developing as an independent and internationally recognized country. At the same time, her neighbors tried to destroy the specific religion known as the Bosnian-Bogomil Church. Being created between the two Christian religions, this Bosnian-Bogomil Church gave specific emphasis to the spiritual development of Bosnia during three centuries.

    A Brief History of Bosnia-Herzegovina
    by Andras Riedlmayer, Harvard University Area 19,741 sq. mi. / 51,130 sq. km (about the size of West Virginia; 1/4 larger than Switzerland). Picturesque mountain scenery (Bosnia's capital Sarajevo hosted the 1984 Winter Olympics), much of it covered by forests; some coal and minerals, no oil. Bosnia's traditional borders, established in the medieval period, are: the Sava River (in the N), the Drina River (E/SE), and the Dinaric Alps (in the W). Herzegovina ("the Duchy") is the historical name for the country's southwestern region (around the town of Mostar). Located in the heart of Europe (as the crow flies, Sarajevo is closer to Rome than Milan is). Population Until the late 19th century, people of all three faiths identified themselves simply as Bosnians. Most Bosnians today are in fact highly secularized, and about a third of all urban marriages in Bosnia in recent decades have been between partners from different religious/ethnic backgrounds. While there were some villages in the countryside where one group or the other predominated, Bosnia's towns and cities have traditionally been the shared home of people from all ethnic and religious groups. The latter include Jews, who found a haven in the tolerant city of Sarajevo in 1492, following their expulsion from Spain. Unlike Jews in Venice and elsewhere in Europe, Sarajevo's Jews were not confined to a ghetto. The city's principal mosques, its synagogues and Christian churches are all located in close proximity to each other, a visible sign of the intermingled public and private lives of its ethnic and religious communities.
