Lenhard Hamza* Marc Weller, Peace Lost: Th e Failure of Confl ict Prevention in Kosovo (Martinus Nijhoff Publishers, 2008), ISBN 978- 9004171404 (hardback) In this book, Marc Weller analyzes the confl ict in Kosovo and the questions of EU and US Diplomacy during the crisis in 1998/1999 and theorizes about its possible prevention, introducing possible theoretical solutions to the NATO military interven- tion. Analyzing the interests of the two general ‘fi ghting parties’, the Serbian state and the Kosovo Albanians, the author enlightens the reader to a possible peace solution. Precisely, in Peace Lost, Weller: “...Address the question of whether the story of the Kosovo confl ict is one of ‘oppor- tunities missed’ in terms of confl ict prevention. If at critical moments during the decade that led up to the NATO intervention, there arose at any time the possibil- ity of exercising a decisive infl uence over the events that eventually led to war.
