"Sabrina Ramet, a veteran observer of the Yugoslav scene, traces the steady deterioration of Yugoslavia's political and social fabric in the years since 1980, arguing that, whatever the complications entailed in the national question, the final crisis was triggered by economic deterioration, shaped by the federal system itself, and pushed forward toward war by Serbian politicans bent on power - either within a centralized Yugoslavia or within an "ethnically cleansed" greater Serbia."--Jacket

Whose democracy? : nationalism, religion, and the doctrine of collective rights in post-1989 Eastern Europe by Sabrina P Ramet( Book )

12 editions published between 1997 and 2000 in English and held by 521 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The years since the collapse of communism in 1989 have witnessed a dangerous renewal of religious intolerance and nationalist demands across Eastern Europe. In this provocative application of moral philosophy to contemporary political processes, Sabrina P. Ramet draws upon the literature of Natural Law to demonstrate that liberal democracy depends on a delicate balance between individual and societal rights. Appeals to the collective rights of national and religious groups rest on spurious claims, as Ramet convincingly shows in her analysis of the situations of Hungarians in Slovakia, Albanians in Kosovo, theoretically inclined Catholic bishops in Poland, Serbs in Croatia, and contending forces in post-Dayton Bosnia. What Ramet calls the doctrine of collective rights actually subverts the liberal democratic project, legitimating instead intolerance and group exclusivity
Balkan babel : politics, culture, and religion in Yugoslavia by Sabrina P Ramet( Book )

10 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 512 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A veteran observer of the Yugoslav scene, Sabrina Ramet describes here the interlocking forces shaping a country on the verge of fragmentation. Arguing that cultural and religious values underpin political behavior, she traces the steady deterioration of Yugoslavia's social and political fabric over the past decade. This decline, she maintains, is deeply rooted in historical trauma and memory and was foreshadowed in the cultural sphere. Ramet explores the unfolding political debates from 1980 to 1986, the growing crisis triggered by the ascent to power of Slobodan Milosevic to power in Serbia, and the dramatic collapse of the existing political order beginning in 1989. She ties these events to the often-overlooked religious and cultural elements of society that have influenced political change. At this point, she contends, no aspect of Yugoslav life--from the media to gender relations to rock music--has escaped the strife-ridden nationality debate or the country's steady political decay. Ramet closes with an analysis of the military conflicts of 1991 and the quickening pressures to break up the country. This book is based on extensive field work in Yugoslavia, involving wide-ranging interviews in five republics over a period of a decade. The result is the most comprehensive survey of recent political, cultural, and religious trends in that polyglot society

Balkan babel : the disintegration of Yugoslavia from the death of Tito to the fall of Milošević by Sabrina P Ramet( Book )

18 editions published between 1996 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Yugoslavia's would-be system-builders failed three times over to build a workable system. The underlying problem was their failure to resolve the problem of legitimacy. In the 1980s, economic deterioration pushed people to despair and, under the pressure of Serbia's ambitious political establishment, the country broke up along ethnic fault lines. This volume, now in its fourth expanded edition, tells the story of socialist Yugoslavia's troubles and the challenges facing its successor states from May 1980 to July 2001
Serbia since 1989 : politics and society under Milos̆ević and after by Sabrina P Ramet( Book )

19 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During thirteen years in power, Slobodan Milosevic and his cohorts plunged Yugoslavia into wars of ethnic cleansing, leading to the murder of thousands of civilians. Their regime also subverted the nation's culture, twisted the political main-stream into a virulent nationalist mold, sapped the economy through war and the criminalization of the free market, returned to gender relations of a bygone era, and left the state so dysfunctional that its peripheries - Kosovo, Vojvodina, and Montenegro - have been struggling to maximize their distance from Belgrade. The essays in this book reveal a Serbia that is still traumatized from Milosevic's rule and groping toward redefining its place in the world

Discusses Serbia's struggle for democratic values after the fall of the Milosevic regime provoked by the NATO war, and after the trauma caused by the secession of Kosovo.

The subjects of their investigations were national myths and symbols, history textbooks, media, film, religion, interethnic dialogue, transitional justice, political party agendas and other related themes
