Before the former Yugoslavia was divided by wars, its inhabitants successfully lived side by side in peace. This collection seeks to explain how former neighbors became enemies, with the hope that understanding what drove these peoples apart will help us discover ways for them to coexist in peace again. Contributors analyze political cartoons, psychiatry, the arts, visual media, and law to present a diversity of views on the conflicts in Yugoslavia. [from publisher's advertisement]

in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection about the Serbs consists of thirty-five documents and 1577 digital images. Serbia is one of two republics within Yugoslavia. Serbs are Slavs and practice the Serbian Orthodox religion. The most comprehensive coverage is provided by Joel M. Halpern and Barbara Kerewsky-Halpern. Their fieldwork (1953-1986) focused on the village of Orasac, a typical Serbian peasant community. Their works concentrate on historical and cultural change and theory, ethno-medicine, the economy, linguistics, oral literature, ritual laments, and memory recall. Their photograph collection represents episodes of their fieldwork, and documents many changes in architecture, household furnishings, dress, agricultural tools, and commerce. The participation of the Halperns and their children in community life is also depicted in these pictures. Lodge presents data on Serbian cultural history and ethnography from 550 A.D. to 1939 A.D. The remaining documents cover topics such as: religion; folk psychology and folk medicine; the economy; kinship; the family; nationalism; literature; fertility and reproduction; women's roles; urban and rural life, and time, in relationship to economic and social development
