The Legitimation of a Revolution: The Yugoslav Case
The Legitimation of a Revolution: The Yugoslav Case
By Bogdan Denis Denitch
Yale University Press, 1976, 254 pp

Using the sociologist's tools and approach, Denitch describes the consolidation of the new revolutionary order in Yugoslavia and its legitimation through the building of new mass-based participatory institutions. The analysis and conclusions of this strongly argued book, which differ from those of many Western observers on crucial points, deserve a careful reading.
