Book's frontpage

This collection of theoretical and empirical papers, written by leading Yugoslav experts (V. Goati, D. Janjić, I. Siber, T. Varady...) is a study of the social and political actors involved in ethnic conflicts in the former Yugoslavia.

The book focuses on outstanding issues of the crisis and on the inter-ethnic civil war (Croatian-Serbian, Muslim-Serbian, Croatian-Muslim) which aims to build an ethnically pure state, analysing them from the point of view of peaceful and democratic conflict management.
It develops a comprehensive theoretical vision of the nation, nationalism and ethnic conflict in the former Yugoslavia, the Balkans and Central-Eastern Europe, and regards the termination of the process of national (chauvinist) homogenization as the top priority.
