Ethnic Cleavages and Conflict
The Sources of National Cohesion and Disintegration - The Case of Yugoslavia
First published in 1997, this volume explores ethnic conflict alongside the creation and disintegration of the short-lived Yugoslav state, 17 years after the death of Tito. Processes of democratization tend to elicit differences within the population along deep-seated ethnic, religious and cultural differences. Dr. Gojko Vuekovic argues that the situation is no different in post-Cold War Yugoslavia. By setting out Yugoslavia’s worst-case scenario of ethnic tensions, Dr. Vuekovic hopes to inform responses to ethnic conflict in the wider modern world.
