Titoism and Dissidence

Studies in the History and Dissolution of Communist Yugoslavia


Tomislav Sunic

The break-up of Yugoslavia cannot be understood without a cursory excursion into its violent past. Run for forty-five years by Communist strongman, Tito, Yugoslavia projected a false picture of a perfect multiethnic melting pot. In fact, the Yugoslav multicultural conviviality could only be upheld by Tito's iron rule -- which was tacitly tolerated by the democratic West. In this book Tomislav Sunic recounts the life of suffering of many Croat, Serb, and Albanian dissidents in the former Yugoslavia.
Contents: Has history come to an end? - Disintegration of multicultural Yugoslavia - The return of history - Western academics and politicians - Dream of a «one world state» - Proliferation of new states around the world.
