Yugoslavism: histories of a failed idea, 1918-1992
"The main aim of this book is to explore the history of 'the Yugoslav idea', or 'Yugoslavism', between the creation of the state at the end of the First World War in 1918 and its dissolution in the early 1990s. The key theme that emerges is that Yugoslavism was a fluid concept, which the different Yugoslav nations, leaders and social groups understood in different ways at different times. There was no single definition of who or what was (or was not) 'Yugoslav' - a fact which perhaps indirectly contributed to the ultimate failure of the Yugoslav idea and, with it, the Yugoslav state." "Written by both established and younger intellectuals from the region and from Western countries, Yugoslavism offers a unique perspective on Yugoslavia's political, social, diplomatic and economic history and contributes to a better understanding of the wars which followed the country's dissolution."--BOOK JACKET.
