Description

Arkan's life story is a hard-boiled crime tale with the speed and scenery of an action movie, and a protagonist who is equal parts James Bond, James Dean, Billy the Kid, and Al Capone.Mass murderer and folk hero Zeljko Raznatovic, better known as Arkan, was one of the key figures in Yugoslavia's chaotic descent into madness in the 1990's. Indicted by The Hague for his war crimes and assassinated theatrically before he could stand trial, Arkan was a hugely terrifying villain who led a cinematic life at a time when Eastern Europe shared more with the Chicago of the 1930s, and when crime was a matter of course.This is not just another Balkans book; it is not a catalogue of frontline accounts, but a behind-the-scenes look at one man who became a symbol of an intensely combustible and illicit age, and at a profound historical moment.
