Product Description

Review

"Branka Magas's writings on the roots of the malignant currents that gave rise to the Milosevic regime in Serbia, as well as its pursuit of one of the most destructive wars in the history of south-eastern Europe, are notable for their clarity and comprehensiveness, and her conclusions are reliable and thought-provoking." - Professor Ivo Banac, Yale University

This is one of the best books produced on the destruction of Yugoslavia as it took place. Branka Magas was one of very few writers working on Yugoslavia during the 1980s and who knew the country thoroughly from the inside. As a result, she was able to produce insights that no-one else in Britain was able to produce at the time. Her first chapter on Kosovo is an excellent example of this. Although her work was limited to small, left-wing journals, she was able to produce work that none of the larger papers or periodicals could match, as she was not, as most were, limited to Belgrade and to the reports of the Belgrade press during the crisis of 1981. Rather, she understood why the Albanians were unhappy and how that discontent developed, something that other British writers found very difficult to manage. A particularly valuable part of the book is where she charts her disappointment with some of her fellow-Marxists associated with the Praxis group who had turned from a critical, humanist, Yugoslav Marxism towards a narrow, Serbian nationalism sponsored by a regime that would lead the Serbian people into four disastrous wars.

This short review is from "Books on Bosnia" published by The Bosnian Institute. Sequence of contemporaneous commentaries and analyses covering the political history of Yugoslavia's final decade, and concentrating particularly on Kosova, the Greater Serbia project, Miloševi 's destruction of the federal system, the Slovenian democratizing alternative, and the nature of the wars unleashed by Belgrade as the country broke up.

Format: Paperback
This book is a sick joke. The author is an apologist for the Ne-facist Croats and barbarous fundamentalist Muslims who started the Balkan conflict by ethnically cleansing Serbs from Croatia and Bosnia. I urge you to read Fools Crusade ( available on Amazon) if you want the real truth about the destruction of multi ethnic socialist Yugoslavia.

A well-ordered summary of Balcanian break-up 23 Nov. 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The author has an objective glance to the disorderand causes of disorder occured in Yugoslavia.Hesuccessfully combines the causes to the uncomfor- table history of Yugoslavia.One thus can get idea of history of Yugoslavia either.Reading the book gives an idea of the total annihilation of many innocence in "old" Yugoslavia...
