This book tells the little known story of the Yugoslav Communists who took Stalin's side in the 1948 break. They never mounted a serious threat to Tito, though they paid a heavy price in the brutal treatment meted out to them by Tito's security men. But there is much more. Banac goes into the history of the Yugoslav Communist movement from its beginnings, showing how ideological issues and factional splits were intertwined with the nationality and social problems that were the stuff of Balkan politics. A rich banquet for those addicted to this kind of fare.
