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.
Whose democracy? nationalism, religion, and the doctrine of collective rights in post-1989 Eastern Europe by Sabrina P Ramet ( Book )
8 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 917 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.

The original essays in Gender Reversals and Gender Cultures explore the historical and cultural diversity of the experience of gender reversal over an exceptional geographical and chronological range.

They reveal the complex relation of gender reversal to taboo, and show how differing attitudes reveal much about particular cultures.

6 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 426 libraries worldwide
Of the many avenues for expressing dissident viewpoints in communist societies, rock music - with its broad appeal among young people - was one of the most effective. Although there were rock groups that sang the praises of communism, other groups struck the pose of "rock rebels," assailing the system through their ribald lyrics and raucous music. Communist regimes generally had a difficult time adjusting to rock music, and some, such as those in Czechoslovakia and.

Religious policy in the Soviet Union ( Book )
9 editions published between 1992 and 2005 in English and held by 374 libraries worldwide
Church-state relations have undergone a number of changes during the seven decades of the existence of the Soviet Union. In the 1920s the state was politically and financially weak and its edicts often ignored, but the 1930s saw the beginning of an era of systematic anti-religious persecution. There was some relaxation in the last decade of Stalin's rule, but under Khrushchev the pressure on the Church was again stepped up. In the Brezhnev period this was moderated to a policy of slow strangulation of religion, and Gorbachev's leadership has seen a thorough liberalization and re-legitimation of religion. This book brings together fifteen of the West's leading scholars of religion in the USSR, and provides the most comprehensive analysis of the subject yet undertaken. Bringing much hitherto unknown material to light, the authors discuss the policy apparatus, programmes of atheisation and socialisation, cults and sects, and the world of Christianity.
Beyond Yugoslavia : politics, economics, and culture in a shattered community ( Book )
5 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 359 libraries worldwide
The fruit of a landmark international collaboration, this book focuses on the final years of socialist Yugoslavia and on the beginning of the country's breakup. With chapters devoted to each of erstwhile Yugoslavia's six republics, the book also offers a unique blend of thematic essays on political, cultural, economic, environmental, religious, and foreign policy issues. Bringing together renowned scholars from the United States, Great Britain, Serbia, and Croatia, the book shows how disintegrative tendencies penetrated and affected all spheres of life in Yugoslavia. The resultant war has, therefore, been fought not only on military and diplomatic fronts but also at the level of economics, through literature and film, and in the spheres of religion and gender relations.
