The author, a journalist, describes his experiences traveling to Kosovo shortly after the Dayton Accords, and examines the prospects for peace in the region

Perseus Publishing
Updated with two new chapters from his most recent 1999 trip to Kosovo, the author observes the on-the-ground impact of the peace agreement with Milosevic and the NATO peacekeepers’ efforts to repair the region.

This first-person, on-the-road travel adventure takes us through one of the most dangerous and hate-filled regions on earth?the former republics of Yugoslavia?and into a land still reeling from months of brutal combat. Told in a fast-paced, rollicking style that’s funny, sad, thoughtful, and at times horrifying, The Road to Kosovo shows us war and the struggle for peace through the eyes of a young journalist.Two new concluding chapters, written after the author’s 1999 visit to Kosovo, provide a rare, on-the-ground assessment of the impact of the NATO peacekeeping mission and the peace agreement with Milosevic. The poignant scenes of death, confusion, and hopelessness that Campbell observes?not from media tents but from the homes of locals, in their bars, and on the side of the road?hearken ominously back to the first days of the peace mission in Bosnia. A vivid, uneasy picture emerges of a region resistant to lasting peace.
