For the past 30 years, Sabrina Ramet has been a frequent visitor to the region now known as the former Yugoslavia and has conducted extensive fieldwork, consisting of both interviews and archival research. Today she is generally regarded as one of the great chroniclers of Yugoslav and post-Yugoslav history and politics. This volume brings together some of her best work on Serbia, Croatia, and Slovenia, written over a period of 25 years, tracing the story of how Yugoslavia sank into its final crisis, how the West responded, and how these three republics have coped with post-communist transition.
Sabrina P. Ramet is a Professor of Political Science at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Trondheim, and a Senior Research Associate of the Centre for the Study of Civil War, International Peace Research Institute, Oslo. She is the author of 11 previous scholarly books - among them, The Three Yugoslavias: State-Building and Legitimation, 1918 - 2005 (Washington D.C. & Bloomington: The Wilson Center Press & Indiana University Press, 2006).
