   schema:reviewBody ""This work recounts Croatia's development from its inception in the early Middle Ages to the present day. Croatia Through History examines institutions, ideology, social evolution and political strategy to explain crucial turning points in the country's complex past." "For centuries Croatia was territorially and administratively divided between various states, and at times even threatened with extinction. Branka Magas makes sense of the whole by tracing the concurrent evolution of Croatia's component parts and their gradual integration into a single polity, despite long-standing historical, ethnic, linguistic, cultural and confessional divisions." "She shows how the country's struggle for survival produced a multitude of national ideologies, some of which advocated independent statehood while others sought Croatia's security in an Austrian, Yugoslav, or European federation. Navigating Croatia's turbulent history, Magas evokes the pluralistic, multi-faceted nationalism underpinning modern Europe."--Jacket." ;
