Rise Of Nationalism In Croatia

Only Available in Archive Formats.

We continue our four-part series about the Balkan Conflict. In part three... the rise of nationalism in Croatia from independence to war. Noah talks to Brian Hall, author of "The Impossible Country," about Croatia's break from the former Yugoslavia and Dr. Franjo (Fran-yo) Tujdman's (TUGE-mans) rise to the presidency. Mr. Hall describes the longstanding resentment Croats have had for the Serbs, and the threat Croat nationalist symbols played in provoking the conflict.
