Books about Former Yugoslavia

Political Myths in the Former Yugoslavia and Successor States juxtaposes and deconstructs various myths and counter-myths that continue to remain contentious points in the reconciliation process in the region. The authors interplay between the dynamics of mythology and politics throughout the 20th century and emphasize the evolution and influence of myths on political discourse. Myths such as ‘Yugonostalgia’, the mythologization of mass graves as well as the impact of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia on nationalist mythmaking are addressed in ‘Political Myths’. This publication is a joint initiative of the Institute for Historical Justice and Reconciliation (The Hague, The Netherlands) and the Center for History, Democracy and Reconciliation (Novi Sad, Serbia)
