Abstract:

"Michael Barratt Brown, who worked in Yugoslavia from 1944 to 1947 and has visited the country regularly thereafter, challenges widespread assumptions of ethnic cleansing." "His personal story tells of what he saw and of the friends he made. Except when outside powers invaded, the several Yugoslav peoples lived peacefully together over hundreds of years. After 1945 they successfully rebuilt their country as a bold experiment in democratic pluralism." "Barratt Brown sees the intervention of Germany and the United States after 1990 as the cause of the breakup. Milosevic and the Serbs were demonized in an attempt to legitimate intervention. Germany and the USA were rivals for power in post-Cold War Europe. Both had an interest in destroying social ownership and establishing a firm base against any Russian resurgence."--BOOK JACKET.
