With the disintegration of Yugoslavia has come a shifting of linguistic boundaries, chiefly along political lines. Out of this complex situation three official languages have emerged: Croatian in Croatia, Serbian in Serbia, and both these languages plus Bosnian in Bosnia-Herzegovina. Bosnian, Croatian, Serbian, a Textbook introduces the student to all three. Dialogues and exercises appear in each language, presented side by side for easy comparison; in addition, Serbian is rendered in both its Latin and its Cyrillic spellings. Teachers may choose a single language to use in the classroom, or they may want to familiarize students with all three. Features of the textbook include: •All dialogues, exercises, and homework assignments available in Bosnian, Croatian, or Serbian
•Classroom exercises designed for both small-group and full-class work, allowing for maximum oral participation
•Reading selections written by Bosnian, Croatian, and Serbian authors especially for this book
•Vocabulary lists for each individual section and full glossaries at the end of the book
•A short animated film, on an accompanying DVD, for use with chapter 15
•Brief grammar explanations after each dialogue, with cross-reference to more detailed grammar chapters in Bosnian, Croatian, Serbian, a Grammar

Available separately, the audio supplement (ISBN 0-299-22110-5) offers audio recordings of all dialogues in Bosnian, Croatian, and Serbian, a Textbook.
