Attanassoff, Velko.  Islamic Revival in the Balkans.  Monterey, CA, Naval Postgraduate School, March 2006.  105 p.
This thesis argues "that the current Islamic revival poses security threat to the region due to its potential of developing into viable Islamic movements on the ground.  I conclude that to counter such security implications, the Balkan governments need to revisit their policies and adopt a proactive approach qualitatively different from the US Global War on Terror strategic framework."--Abstract.

Lee, Robert Deemer.  Religion and Politics in the Middle East: Identity, Ideology, Institutions, and Attitudes.  Boulder, CO , Westview Press, 2010.  335 p.
"This innovative book analyzes the interaction of politics and religion in the Middle East through a comparative study of Egypt, Israel, Turkey, and Iran.  Author Robert D. Lee examines each country in terms of four areas in which state and religion necessarily interact: group identity, ideology, institutions, and political culture.  He also considers twenty-five commonly encountered, but often contradictory, hypotheses asserting that religion is either an obstacle or an aid to political development, or that religion is largely irrelevant to the development process.  Lee concludes that politics shapes religion as much or more than religion shapes politics.  The nature of religious organization and practice in the Middle East cannot be understood without reference to a national political context."--P. 4 of cover.

"This volume argues that the underappreciated court (International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia ) has in fact made a substantial contribution to Bosnia and Herzegovina’s transition to democracy.  ...Much of the early rhetoric about the transformative potential of international criminal law helped foster unrealistic expectations that institutions like the ICTY could not meet, but judged by more realistic standards, international law is seen to play a modest yet important role in postwar transitions.  The findings of this study have implications for the study of international courts around the world and the role law plays in contributing to social change"--Provided by Publisher.

"The main regional determinant of southern Balkan stability in the latter half of the twentieth century has always been the issue of the status of Kosovo.  In the first half of the century, it could be argued that the Macedonian issue was more important, but that it had been eclipsed by the outcome of the Greek Civil War in 1949 and the practical division of old geographic Macedonia between Greece, the second socialist Yugoslavia, and Bulgaria."--Abstract.

"Key findings: --The problems of the Greek minority in Albania continue to affect the wider relationship between Albania and Greece.-- Efforts to improve the situation and human rights of the minority have met with delays and difficulties as both past and present Albanian and Greek governments have been willing to use nationalism as political capital for electoral benefits.-- External manipulation of the minorities’ issues by nationalist-based groups has hindered efforts to correctly evaluate the minority situation and contributed to interethnic tensions.-- The election of a new government in Greece may offer an opportunity to attempt to solve some of these problems and improve regional relationships."--P. i.

"This is a probing analysis of the crisis in Bosnia and the dilemmas surrounding international efforts to resolve it.  The authors analyze the causes and conduct of the war; why, for more than three years, international efforts to resolve the conflict in Bosnia failed; and why one such effort finally succeeded in late 1995.  They review the provisions of the Dayton accord and ask whether subsequent experience supports the hope that the accord will lead to long-term peace in Bosnia."--Book Jacket.
