New Projects and Books

Upcoming 2020: I am presently working on research for a new book entitled History of Croatia and Slovenia (Greenwood). This accessible yet comprehensive volume will provide readers curious about these neighboring Adriatic countries with a solid introduction to they key events and developments that shaped these nations, from Roman and medieval times to the birth of nationalism, Yugoslav and post-Yugoslav iterations.

 America’s migration crisis on the southern border: the current drama of ‘caravans’ of migrants traveling from Central America through Mexico in organized groups bound for the US border has sparked a spirited debate over border control and security.

Many lessons applicable to this current scenario can be gleaned from my 2017 study of the European migration crisis- from how European countries handled the crisis to long-term outlooks for economic, political and security developments.

Readers keen on Balkan intrigue and espionage, with a dash of satire (and more than a bit of tragedy) will enjoy my new novel, The Macedonia Deception.

In it, a small group of patriots revives a century-old secret organization with the help of a Jewish WWII survivor and IRA fugitive. Known as the Internal Organization for the Liberation of Macedonia, the group disrupts, harasses and eliminates foreign adversaries intent on forcing the country to change its name and identity. However, the dueling interests of other shadow actors create the conditions for a steady escalation of anarchic outcomes, driving the story to its dizzying, brutal climax.
