Product Details


Liberating Kosovo is an engaging read. Phillips knows how to tell a story, and he has a story to tell…Phillips’s re-telling of the Albanian-Americans’ campaign for Kosova is highly instructive, and also entertaining…Phillips appears to have spoken to almost everyone who counts in America and Kosova.—Toby Vogel, Illyria

Phillips’ subjective version of the recent history of Kosovo has strengths that a self-consciously objective analysis would probably lack. It provides an authentic account of the motivations of the policymakers involved [and] it makes it easier to identify heroes: The author populates his narrative with larger-than-life portraits of Richard Holbrooke, Martti Ahtisaari, and Soren Jessen-Petersen.

Erik Jones, Survivor

David Phillips has produced a great diplomatic history about the U.S. Intervention in the Balkans and the subsequent independence of Kosovo.

James Cricks, Military Review
