To what sort of peace have the Bosnians, Croatians and Serbs actually agreed? According to TIME's James Graff, the 19-page treaty signed in Paris on Thursday is a straightforward document that addresses anything-but-straightforward issues. Despite deep enmities, the parties have committed themselves to abide by "annexes" that fill more than 150 pages of typescript, and range from vague promises to "make strenuous efforts to cooperate with each other" to constructing a Rube Goldberg government with a bicameral legislature and a three-person executive presidency. "There's been a very obvious demonstration of the difficulties to come in the fact that many of the the Serbs in Sarajevo are packing their bags," says Graff.
