Description:

This book investigates the forces shaping the development of education systems in Bosnia and the impact those historical forces may, or may not, have on the condition of current secondary education in Bosnia today.

The book outlines the historical forces shaping Bosnia education with particular attention to the Austro-Hungarian and Communist periods. It also examines in detail the development of the military systems of the country. The current state of secondary education is surveyed and analyzed to provide the reader a view of the education system today.
