Miniature Empires free pdf The 20th century's most protracted conflict, the Cold War also provided the longest and most stable peace in the history of the modern world - a fragile peace that came at the price of national freedom for many. With the demise of the Cold War, new nearly unknown countries, long ignored or suppressed, came to the world's attention as ethnic and national conflicts rooted in the newly independent states' own multiethnic populations, emerged. From Bosnia-Herzegovina and Macedonia to Eritrea and Uzbekistan, this book provides a guide to the states recognized since 1989 and the nations that dwell in their borders.
