Summary The Yugoslav crisis - armed conflict, ethnic cleansing and the reverberating ideas and mindsets has been going on for more than ten years. Written by authors who have lived through these social conflicts, The Road to War in Serbia is the first serious assessment to explore the roots of the conflict in the former Yugoslavia. Based on years of research, the authors -- eminent scholars in the field -- highlight key issues which have to date remained unknown or which have been previously neglected.
The issues dealt with include the institutional frameworks of ethnicity and nationalism; the input of the church, science, literature and sports; specific catalysts of the conflict and the role of the political actors, students, the ruling party and the media.
The Road to War in Serbia will be of great interest to all readers who want to understand why and how the violent option of settling disputes and conflicts on the territory of Yugoslavia is being accepted.
