From the introduction: 'Throughout Serbia's history, no leader has risen to become as powerful and celebrated as Slobodan Milocevic, or fallen as low. At the onset of the twenty-first century, he was instrumental in determining the Serb's fate, and also that of former Yugoslavia and the Balkans. And no woman throughout Serbian history (and few elsewhere) has been as influential as Milocevic's wife, Professor Mira Markovic. This book is about them, their regime, and the circumstances in which the Serbs encountered their greatest setbacks, and became global pariahs.' Although there have been many attempts to tell Slobodan Milocevic's story, "Milocevic and Markovic" is the first book to shows us the real person. Originally written in Serbo-Croatian by a Yugoslav journalist and driven underground in its native country, "Milocevic and Markovic" offers a first-hand account of Milocevic's life, including the recent events in Kosovo.Slavoljub Djukic sheds light on Milocevic's autocratic rule, showing how he, with his wife, Mira Markovic, has dominated Serbia's political life for the last twelve years - first as president of Serbia and later as president of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (FRY).
