✏After Yugoslavia Book Summary : After Yugoslavia is a collection of post-Yugoslav voices reflecting recent developments and trends ught within the Yugoslav successor states since the signing of the Dayton Agreements in autumn 1995. This book offers a distinctive and desirable perspective on the seven successor states, their cultures, politics and identities. It provides an internal perspective on the region and its developments through a multitude of views which are rarely brought into conjunction. The collection is interdisciplinary in its approach, albeit with an emphasis on contemporary politics. It draws together anthropologists, historians, sociologists, constitutional lawyers, political commentators and other scholars, many of whom have international reputations and are highly regarded in their own disciplines. -- Publisher description.

✏After Yugoslavia Book Summary : The book brings together many of the best known commentators and scholars who write about former Yugoslavia. The essays focus on the post-Yugoslav cultural transition and try to answer questions about what has been gained and what has been lost since the dissolution of the common country. Most of the contributions can be seen as current attempts to make sense of the past and help cultures in transition, as well as to report on them. The volume is a mixture of personal essays and scholarly articles and that combination of genres makes the book both moving and informative. Its importance is unique. While many studies dwell on the causes of the demise of Yugoslavia, this collection touches upon these causes but goes beyond them to identify Yugoslavia's legacy in a comprehensive way. It brings topics and writers, usually treated separately, into fruitful dialog with one another.

✏Citizenship after Yugoslavia Book Summary : This book is the first comprehensive examination of the citizenship regimes of the new states that emerged out of the break up of Yugoslavia. It covers both the states that emerged out of the initial disintegration across 1991 and 1992 (Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia and Macedonia), as well as those that have been formed recently through subsequent partitions (Serbia, Montenegro and Kosovo). While citizenship has often been used as a tool of ethnic engineering to reinforce the position of the titular majority in many states, in other cases citizenship laws and practices have been liberalised as part of a wider political settlement intended to include minority communities more effectively in the political process. Meanwhile, frequent (re)definitions of these increasingly overlapping regimes still provoke conflicts among post-Yugoslav states. This volume shows how important it is for the field of citizenship studies to take into account the main changes in and varieties of citizenship regimes in the post-Yugoslav states, as a particular case of new state citizenship. At the same time, it seeks to show scholars of (post) Yugoslavia and the wider Balkans that the Yugoslav crisis, disintegration and wars as well as the current functioning of the new and old Balkan states, together with the process of their integration into the EU, cannot be fully understood without a deeper understanding of their citizenship regimes. This book was originally published as a special issue of Citizenship Studies.

✏Don t Mourn Balkanize Book Summary : Grubacic's remarkable collection of essays, commentaries and interviews, written between 2002 and 2010, chronicles the political experiences of the author himself, who is both a man without a country (as a Yugoslav) and a man without a state (as an Anarchist). In particular, he focuses on the ironies and implications of the now fashionable term 'balkanisation' - the fragmentation, division and foreign intervention with which politicians in the Balkans have struggled for centuries and for which the region has now, ironically, become famous.

✏Liberal Forces in Twentieth Century Yugoslavia Book Summary : "Liberal Forces in Twentieth Century Yugoslavia: Memoirs of Ladislav Bevc" spans 80 years of his professional and political life: from the early years of his childhood in the large family of a civil servant, to his studies in Vienna and the interruption of his professional career by military service at the Eastern and Western front under the detested Austrian flag, to a flourishing career in the liberated homeland of Yugoslavia. Born in Skocijan, Slovenia, he graduated as a civil engineer from the Technical University in Vienna. In World War I, he served on the front in Russia and France. Following the war, Ladislav Bevc focused his life on politics, civic organizations, and the engineering profession. In Ljubljana, he served as a city councilman and was active in civic and academic affairs. He helped establish a new University and resisted Communist subversion in the Sokol Patriotic Gymnast Association. Following the German invasion in World War II, he joined the resistance movement of General Dragoljub Mihajlovich, which led to encounters with the Gestapo and eventual political emigration. In 1949, he immigrated to California, where he remained active in the efforts to liberate Yugoslavia from the Communists and rescued his family, who had been held hostage. In the free world, he organized the Slovenian liberal emigres in the Slovenian Democratic Party and was instrumental in rebuilding the Yugoslav Sokol in the Free World. He practiced civil engineering in the United States, where he was elected Fellow of the American Society of Civil Engineers. He died on November 29, 1988."
