U.S. Participation in IFOR: A Marathon, not a Sprint. Authored by Dr. William T. Johnsen.
This monograph examines the potential for creating suitable conditions for a lasting political settlement in Bosnia by December 1996, identifies possible outcomes of a U.S. withdrawal from IFOR, and assesses potential consequences for U.S. national objectives and interests within the Balkans, and beyond.

Deciphering the Balkan Enigma: Using History to Inform Policy. Authored by Dr. William T. Johnsen.
After having been fueled by the events of the distant and recent past, the current wars in the former Yugoslavia finally may be grinding to a halt.

U.S. Policy in the Balkans: A Hobson's Choice. Authored by Dr. Stephen J. Blank, Dr. William T. Johnsen, Dr. Earl H. Tilford, Jr..
At this writing, the strategic balance may have shifted in the ongoing war in the former Yugoslavia, and the region could be on the verge of a settlement. But, the "window of opportunity" may be fleeting, and the failures and frustrations of the past four years temper any optimism that conflict in the former Yugoslavia will end quickly or completely.
