Yugoslavia: A Fractured Federalism

Yugoslavia: A Fractured Federalism
Edited by Dennison Rusinow
Wilson Center Press, 1989, 200 pp. Purchase

Papers written by Yugoslav and American scholars for a conference at the Wilson Center in 1986. They look at Yugoslavia's perennial nationalities problem and its constitutional and other implications from various angles, and all emphasize the seriousness of the current political and economic crisis. We are not given a summary of the conference discussions or debates, and there is no overall synthesis; the editor's introduction is good but disappointingly brief. Perhaps the problems are too complex to understand, as they appear to be too complex for the Yugoslavs to cope with.
