Singleton's work, after a brief survey of the prewar kingdom, presents a comprehensive and reasonably objective picture of the domestic and foreign policies of the Tito regime. Extensive use of Yugoslav materials is informed by personal contacts with the country and its people. Furtak's work is more in the nature of a handbook, which describes and analyzes Yugoslavia's political and social institutions. Both authors cast an eye at future problems.
