about

The Yugoslav breakup and conflict gave rise to a considerable body of literature with dramatically different interpretations of the causes of the dissolution. But, how do these various interpretations relate to each other? Sabrina Ramet, a veteran Yugoslav authority, reviews and analyzes more than 130 books dealing with the region that comprises the former Yugoslavia: Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Macedonia, Montenegro, and Kosovo.

Editorial Reviews

"Ramet arranges the diverse answers of American, German, English, Croatian, Serbian, and other authors (to controversial questions).  She describes the often diametrically different positions succinctly..." -- Dunja Melcic, in KOMUNE
