The Yugoslav Experiment 1948-1974

By Dennison Rusinow

University of California Press, 1977, 431 pp.

Probably no other American has such knowledge and understanding of contemporary Yugoslavia as Dennison Rusinow. Here he calls on his long experience as American Universities Field Staff associate in that country to describe the course that, since the break with Stalin, has been marked by "the astounding flexibility and adaptability of the Yugoslavs, both leaders and led." Especially good on the successive internal crises associated with the names of Djilas, Rankovic, Tripalo and Nikezic.
