About this book

This book, the first of two volumes, challenges decades of superficial and selective rhetoric about Tito’s Yugoslavia. The essays explore some of the gaps in the existing descriptions of the country that have existed for decades. Contributors cover a range of topics including the abolition of the multi-party system, nonalignment, and the 1968 reinforcing position among others.

Reviews

“This fascinating collection of essays by an impressive team of scholars will become required reading for anyone interested in the still insufficiently researched and understood topic of Tito's Yugoslavia.” (Marko Hoare, Associate Professor of Economics, Politics and History, Kings University London, England)

“New data, documents and emergence of silenced stories forces us to constantly reconsider what we thought we knew about past events and developments. The disintegration of the Yugoslav state may never be fully understood in all its complexity. To understand it better we need to know more about the time before, during and after its demise. This is why this book is important, timely and necessary.” (Inger Skjelsbæk, University of Oslo and PRIO, Norway, author of “The Political Psychology of War Rape: Studies from Bosnia and Herzegovina” (2011))
