Blurb/Shorttext:
Patriotism for Sale portrays Slovenia's tumultuous 25 years after the country's first multi-party elections in the spring of 1991 and the establishment of Independent Slovenia. It intertwines the personal stories, traumas and misdeeds of numerous actors, both well-known and less-known, since the first years of Slovenia's independence. The book delves into the reasons behind the armed conflict between the emerging Slovene defense forces and the Yugoslav Army and describes war profiteering, with the help of weapons trafficking committed by several important “heroes of independence.” Many of these same "heroes" still occupy important political and military positions and continue to influence Slovenian politics. Patriotism for Sale is now ready for a wider public, beyond Slovenia. The book is immaculately researched and tells a compelling true crime drama involving both individuals and nations. While the events took place in Slovenia, they proved of crucial importance to the disintegration of Yugoslavia and the Balkan Wars, which claimed a quarter million lives.
