Croatia to join EU and NATO - but are Croats ready for it?
Croatia is on the verge of joining the European Union and NATO. If all goes well it will become the 28th member of the EU in 2010 and a member of NATO as early as next year. It will join Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia, Hungary and the Czech Republic among former communist states to have made this journey. But according to Slavenka Drakulic many Croatians are unaware of the consequences and unwilling to give up their hard won sovereignty.
