- Representations of Yugoslavia´s difficult past from 1945 to 2002af Tea Sindbæk
The book examines the way in which the history of Yugoslavia´s ´internal´ problematic past was presented and used politically and ideologically, and asks how a society can cope with such an ´unmasterable´ history. How did Yugoslav historians and politicians represent and explain their own history and how did these representations interact with the cultural developments, political demands and societal needs? By investigating political documents, historiography and popular representations of history such as films, songs and literature, the book´s author reveals a deeply disturbing narrative of historical (mis)interpretation and (mis)use.
