Product Description: Bern, Berlin, Bruxelles, Frankfurt/M., New York, Oxford, Wien. The Kosovo crisis, the fourth Yugoslav war in less than a decade, was a turning point for Europe. Once more Europe witnessed the spectre of ethnic cleansing and bloody conflict on its doorstep. This study, written by eight authors from different parts of the continent, gives an account of the crisis and the efforts to restore order, maintain peace and rebuild the region afterwards. Based on the complex national, ethnic and religious issues in the former Yugoslavia, it analyses the background of the conflict, and then focuses on the short and long-term implications for the European Union. The shortcomings of the EU's performance before and during the crisis are examined (the diplomatic process, the role of Russia and the refugee crisis), then the efforts of the EU in the post-crisis reconstruction process are looked at (KFOR, Stability Pact) before focusing on implications for EU enlargement, transatlantic relations, Russia and specifically for the developing foreign policy and crisis management capacity of the Union after the meetings of Cologne, Helsinki and Feira, and for the present and future role of the EU in south-eastern Europe.

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”.

4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
