Product Description:

Very few books have been written about the early Croats and their history remains in virtual 'terra incognita' to the English-speaking world. This book has been written, specifically in the English language, with the intention to inform my children, family and friends about the history of the early Croats; from the emergence and evolution of the proto-Croatian tribes to the establishment and demise of the various Croatian national states throughout the ancient times and the medieval periods. "A History of the Early Croats" is focused on the early Croatian rulers, kingdoms and principalities and provides a general overview of the people and significant historical events; within Croatian territories and the wider region, that have forged the Croatian nation through the ages.

Product Description:
“Božo Skoko has written a book that only a Croat could write, but one that everyone interested in Croatia today should read. He is searingly honest, while determinedly fair-minded, about what is right and wrong in this young state with such unfulfilled potential. He describes what is unique, and often maliciously distorted, in Croatia's historic identity. He examines what is self-destructive and difficult, though also lovable and admirable, in the outlook of its people. Not least, he exposes what is deplorable and inexcusable about the failure of the governing elite to live up to their responsibilities. I hope it may make some of them lose sleep, but I wouldn’t bet on it.”Robin Harris, author and historian

Product Description:

The name Stjepan Radic is as well known to Croatians as Sir John A. MacDonald is to Canadians. In 1904, Radic mobilized the peasantry to form a populist movement that resulted in the Croat Peasant Party. The CPP fought to reform Yugoslavia's centralist state system and to amend the structural flaws of the parliamentary system. His assassination in 1928 marked the end of the country's short democratic experience; a royalist dictatorship immediately followed. Croatia failed to achieve statehood or autonomy within Yugoslavia, but Radic's indisputably dominant role in the formation of Croatian national consciousness is widely celebrated among Croatians today.

The story of this charismatic, ideologically eclectic politician and his role in nation-building makes for fascinating reading. In North America, with our increasing involvement in the political conflicts of the former Yugoslavia, we cannot afford to remain ignorant of the major historical forces involved in the early Serb/Croat struggles for power and identity. This is an essential work for political scientists and other specialists in the area.

Product Description:

Gender Politics in the Western Balkans traces the development of women's consciousness in the lands of the South Slavs from the early years of the twentieth century, on the eve of the creation of the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats, and Slovenes, to the situation during and after the Serbian Insurrectionary War of 1991–95. The book embraces historical chapters, contemporary political analyses, and cultural studies (focusing on literature and religion).

Socialist Yugoslavia undertook a relatively unusual experiment during the forty-six years of its existence (1945–91)—to eliminate the sources of social, economic, and gender inequality while laying the foundation for a society in which women and men could enjoy complete equality in politics, in education and careers, and in family life. Although the aspiration was shared with other communist countries, Yugoslavia gave its experiment a unique twist by linking its program with institutional changes to be realized through self-management organs and a complicated delegate system. The socialist system represented an improvement where gender equality was concerned over the pre-existing system associated with the interwar Kingdom of Yugoslavia, but it did not fulfill its promises.

Recognizing the need for a book that surveys the experience of South Slav women during the twentieth century, Sabrina Ramet commissioned essays from leading scholars in East European/Yugoslav studies and women’s studies for this volume. The resulting collection is arranged in rough chronological order, covering primarily Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, and Bosnia from before World War II until present day. Topics covered include the structures of traditional society, gender relations in the interwar period, anti-Fascist organizations, the socialist experience, and issues connected to post-socialist politics and the war, making this the most comprehensive and up-to-date book on the subject.

Contributors are Andrei Simić, Thomas A. Emmert, Vlasta Jalušič, Barbara Jancar-Webster, Tatjana Pavlović, Žarana Papić, Julie Mertus, Obrad Kesić, Regan Ralph, Dorothy Thomas, Gordana Crnković, Mart Bax, Branka Magaš, and Sabrina Ramet.

Product Description:
This is a reprinting of the rare 1951 work "A Message from Croat Moslems to their Religious Brethren in the World" by Dr. Dzafer Kulenovich. It was translated by an unnamed individual from the Serbian-Croatian language into English. The language spoken in former Yugoslavia is called Croatian in the text. The Bosnian dialect is now recognized as a separate language and part of the path to that recognition was Bosnian Muslims finding their political, social, and religious identity through the turbulent times of war, occupation, and Communist pressure against Islam.

Product Description:

This book analyzes the reasons for the emergence and extinction of the Croatian name in four Slovene border regions. The author uses comparative methods and a broad spectrum of sources. In the early Modern Age, the Croatian name established itself in these areas as a temporary phenomenon, replacing the original Slovene name, which at that time had a «pre-national» content and was also used by a considerable portion of today’s Croats. Extending the use of the Croatian name to the Slovene border regions was a component of a broader and long-term process. The author explores how this process was triggered by tectonic geopolitical changes resulting from the Ottoman conquests in the Balkans and the Pannonian Basin.

Product Description:

This book analyzes how states extend their sovereignty beyond their territories through the language of diasporas.

An increasing number of states are interested in supporting, managing or controlling their populations abroad, something they define as their ‘diaspora’. Yet what does it mean for governments to formulate claims of sovereignty over populations who reside outside the very borders that legitimate them? This book argues that ‘diaspora’ should be understood as a performative discourse that enables transnational political practices that could otherwise not be justified in a normative structure of world politics, dominated by the imperatives of territorial sovereignty. The empirical analysis focuses on the former Yugoslavia and contemporary Croatia. The first part of the book examines the history of the relations between Croats abroad and their homeland, from the emergence of the question of emigration as a problem of government in the late nineteenth century until the years preceding the formation of the contemporary Croatian state. The second part explores how, in the 1990s, the merging of bureaucratic categories and state practices into the category of ‘diaspora’ was instrumental in mobilizing Croats abroad during the 1991-1995 war; in reshuffling the balance between Serbs and Croats in the citizenry; and in the de facto annexation of parts of neighboring Bosnia-Herzegovina in the immediate aftermath of the war.

This book will be of much interest to students of critical security studies, international political sociology, diaspora studies, border studies, and International Relations in general.
