In this groundbreaking book, Derek Chollet provides unprecedented insights into the high-stakes diplomacy behind the historic 1995 Dayton agreement that ended the war in Bosnia-the most devastating conflict in Europe since the Second World War. Based on still unopened US government archives and hours of interviews, The Road to the Dayton Accords is a fast-paced history that focuses on the key players, decisions and events on the difficult journey to peace, taking the reader from the killing fields of the Balkans, to tense meetings in the Oval Office, to dramatic negotiations on a secluded Air Force base in Dayton, Ohio. Exhaustively researched and candidly written, this is a behind-the-scenes portrait of statecraft at the highest levels. The book sheds new light on one of the Clinton administration's most important-and lasting-diplomatic achievements, which proved to be a critical turning point for America's relationship with Europe and for Bill Clinton's presidency. With novelistic detail, this book also deepens our understanding of the course and conduct of modern American foreign policy, especially over US efforts to solve the world's most difficult conflicts-a challenge that still dominates the news today.
