The Yugoslav Drama
"Revised to include recent events, this work provides an account of the war in the former Yugoslavia from an insider's point of view. Crnobrnja describes the patchwork of nationalities held together by the sheer force of Tito's will, and shows how the erosion of Soviet power in Eastern Europe led inexorably to chaos and violence. At Tito's death, his stifling of domestic politics left no stable legacy - the only political memories that Yugoslavs were able to draw on were the memories of their various nationalisms. The ensuing disaster is there for all to see"--Publisher's description.
