Church and State in Yugoslavia Since 1945
By Stella Alexander
Cambridge University Press, 1979, 373 pp.
The author has done a remarkable job of recounting in detail the relations between the communist authorities and the Catholic and Orthodox Churches, considering the difficulty of getting material and the political delicacy of the subject. As she concedes, the story necessarily has gaps, and the hardened line of the regime since 1971 makes extensive research on developments of the past decade impossible.
