...Balkans Introduction This article discusses the international intervention in the Balkans that significantly impacted the rebuilding process in the region. During the years since the ending of the Bosnian war, outside intervention in the region has continued to grow, most openly in NATO's 1999 aerial bombardment of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. Accordingly, this article puts a broader historical view on placing this action and other recent international activity within the Balkan region. This is for the reason that the latter part of 1995 international intervention cannot be considered in isolation from the expectations and anxieties engendered by past incursions...

Libya had lost to Italy and an “autonomist insurrection” taking place in Albania in the summer of 1912 compelled the Ottoman leaders to give in to the demands of the Albanians.1 It appeared as though the Albanian nationalist movement was about to obtain its goal for autonomy within the Ottoman Empire. The nationalist movements and governments of Montenegro, Serbia, Greece and Bulgaria saw this as a threat to their own goal of achieving autonomy and were motivated to make a pre-emptive strike against the Ottomans and the Albanians.2 Pursuant... to their...
