The publisher's announcement states the following about the book:
"Diversity has always been at the heart of Bosnia and Herzegovina's character; even its dual name and physical geography display a particular heterogeneity. The medieval Bosnian state never enjoyed lasting political and ideological unity as its feudal, regional, and religious rifts pulled at the country's seams. Furthermore, because of its location and by a quirk of history, three major world religious and cultural traditions (Catholicism, Islam, and Orthodoxy) became cohabitants in this small Balkan country. Recently, the rebirth of its statehood has been exceptionally bloody and its diversity has been shaken. Even eleven years after the guns were silenced, the country is still under the "benevolent" protection of the international community, whose officials are keeping the state-building process in perpetual suspense, with no final result in sight.
The second edition of the Historical Dictionary of Bosnia and Herzegovina sheds light on the uncertain situation

Historical Dictionaries of Europe
Editor(s): Jon Woronoff, Series Editor
The Historical Dictionary series on Europe contains two types of books: those reaching far back to the earliest periods of European history, which describe the peoples who created the kingdoms and territories that gradually emerged into its present state, and those dealing only with the modern state. Each historical dictionary includes a map, list of acronyms, chronology, bibliography and the core "dictionary," with hundreds of cross-referenced entries on persons, places, events, institutions and related political, economic, social, and cultural aspects. As with the other series, these books are written by well-known country specialists and are periodically updated to keep abreast of the times.
But not everything can be squeezed into the country volumes and those interested in Europe should also consult historical dictionaries in other series, such as Religions, Philosophies, and Movements (Catholicism, Lutheranism, etc.); Cities (Paris, London, etc.); International Organizations (European Community, European Organizations); Ancient Civilizations and Historical Eras (Napoleonic Era, Renaissance, Vikings, etc.); and War (British Civil Wars, Crimean War, etc.). It might also be mentioned that Turkey is included in the Europe series while Armenia is in the Asia series.
