Review

""After the Revolution" is an excellent, articulate book that presents a detailed and lively historical and ethnographic analysis of the forms of political engagement that followed the Serbian revolution . . . [I]ts trenchant, illuminating analysis of the everyday semiotic categories of time, space, and praxis underlying revolutionary and postrevolutionary politics will also have broad and lasting relevance to scholars and students in many disciplines and areas."Paul Manning, "Slavic Review""

"["After the Revolution" is] a very welcome and methodologically distinct repositioning in the field of transition studies. Students and scholars of democracy will therefore find [it] stimulating. [It is] equally exemplary for the comprehensive interrogation of the analytical preoccupation with democratic institutions and procedures to the detriment of citizen practice."Dan Mercea, "Perspectives on Politics""

""After the Revolution: Youth, Democracy, and the Politics of Disappointment in Serbia" offers rare insight from an anthropological perspective into life in Serbia following the end in 2000 of Slobodan Milo evic's rule for more than a decade . . . These . . . compelling glimpses into political life in higher educational institutions in Serbia are a testament to the anthropologist's ability to accumulate valuable knowledge through long-term participant-observation and proficiency in the local language."Gerard A. Weber, "Reviews and Critical Commentary (CritCom)"
"The book captures uncertainties, complexities, and contradictions of youth activism and democracy building. It contributes to our understanding of youth activism, citizenship, political participation, and democracy by expanding these concepts to entail temporal, spatial, affective, performative, and ethical dimensions . . . Greenberg's powerful arguments about political transformations and thorough analysis of everyday technologies of democracy building are an important contribution to the anthropology of global politics. "After the Revolution" is a good example of a theoretical endeavor, which transcends common analytics prevalent in scholarship on a post-Cold War Europe for several decades." Neringa Klumbyte, "Anthropology of East Europe Review"
"In this fascinating and important new book, Jessica Greenberg makes a significant contribution to the anthropology of politics. Focusing on the dilemmas faced by political activists in the aftermath of revolutionary change, she deftly weaves together issues of temporality, youth, affect, and democracy. "After the Revolution" will be of great interest to scholars in multiple fields of study."David Nugent, Emory University
"This insightful book describes in great ethnographic detail the challenging process of constructing democracy in today's post-violence Serbia, when earlier revolutionary dreams and utopian expectations have been long abandoned. In this context youth-based political activism is full of contradictions and disappointments and its outcome is not guaranteed. However, the messiness and uncertainty of this practice, Jessica Greenberg convincingly shows, are signs not of democracy's failure, but of its real promise. The powerful thesis of this book is of great importance for our understanding of the contemporary tensions of democracy everywherenot only in the former Yugoslavia and other post-communist states, but also in the 'democratic world' itself."Alexei Yurchak, University of California, Berkeley"

[It is] equally exemplary for the comprehensive interrogation of the analytical preoccupation with democratic institutions and procedures to the detriment of citizen practice."--Dan Mercea

"At a time when manifestos on the politics of hope abound, it is precisely through such historicization that Greenberg's book constitutes an important intervention beyond the study of Serbia, too . . . Greenberg's sophisticated book offers ethnographically informed food for thought on the politics of disappointment, and therefore of hope, today. This is political anthropology at its best."--Stef Jansen "Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute "

-The forms of agency created from the politics of disappointment discussed in After the Revolution are directly relevant for thinking about politics in the former Yugoslavia and postsocialist Eastern Europe, as well as about other groups and actors that are regularly faced with political disillusionment. The imminent disappointments of democratic forms of rule should not lead us to abandon 'the possibility of practicing or analyzing politics, only the investment in the stability of political meaning'. In this way, After the Revolution suggests that disappointment may give rise to the politics of practical hope.---Čarna Brkovć
