Summary
In the 1990s, Yugoslavia, once a role model for development, became a symbol for state collapse, external intervention and post-war reconstruction. In this first in-depth critical analysis of international administration, aid and reconstruction policies in Kosovo, the author argues that the region must be analyzed as a whole, and that the process of state collapse and recent changes in aid policy must be interpreted in connection to the wider transformation of the global political economy and world order. He examines the shifting inter- and intracommunity relations, the emergence of a "political economy" of conflict, and of informal clientelist arrangements in Serbia and Kosovo and provides a framework for interpreting the collapse of the Yugoslav state, the emergence of ethnic conflict and shadow economies, and the character of western aid and intervention. --
