His name was known worldwide as the totalitarian leader of Yugoslavia but the true story of the famous dictator is familiar to few. He rose from humble origins to dominate his fractious nation for over 40 years. Alone among Eastern-Bloc leaders, he refused to bow to Russia's every whim, earning him the wary respect of both East and West.

Josip Broz Tito was a communist maverick. While relying on Soviet support, he refused to be Moscow's puppet, and he shaped a nation that escaped some of the worst of the troubles that other Soviet satellites experienced. Born a peasant, he was jailed for his communist views in the 1920s and later became a spy for Moscow.

BIOGRAPHY® follows Tito from his years of activism and resistance to his emergence as the head of a reshaped nation after World War II. Former Secretary of State Lawrence Eagleburger talks of the traits that won the dictator international respect, while little-known facts of his life and rule are revealed by authors, biographers and journalists.

From his run-ins with Moscow to the tragic disintegration of his nation into ethnic hatred after his death, this is a moving portrait of a powerful, misunderstood ruler.
