About the books:

Resisting the Evil: [Post-]Yugoslav Anti-War Contention illuminates (post-)Yugoslav anti-war engagement as an important and up to now neglected aspect of the complex process of Yugoslavia’s dissolution. This book presents a series of both activist and scholarly accounts written by authors coming from all of the republics and provinces of the former Yugoslavia. Employing a distinctly transnational approach and contextualising painful biographical narratives, Resisting the Evil offers a “look from within” which has been conspicuously missing from the regional sociology. Multiple forms of resistance to the wars of the Yugoslav succession are here positioned at the centre of a variety of intersecting power relations and ideological vantage points. Rather than opting for any kind of one-dimensional interpretation of the phenomena that it studies, this volume shows that a multi-scalar recovery of marginalised voices and experiences opens up a possibility for — or even requires — new forms of scholarship which transcend the mainstream insistence on “detached” analysis.

Positioned at the interface between historical sociology, anthropology, and social movement studies, We Were Gasping for Air: [Post-]Yugoslav Anti-War Activism and Its Legacygoes beyond the widely exploited paradigms of nationalism and civil society to track the (post-)Yugoslav anti-war protest cycle which unfolded throughout the

1990s. Drawing upon extensive fieldwork in the region, the author argues that (post-)Yugoslav anti-war activism cannot be recovered without appreciating both the

inter- and intra-republican cooperations and contestations in socialist Yugoslavia.

(Post-)Yugoslav anti-war undertakings appropriated and developed the already existing social networks and were instrumental for the establishment of present-day organisations devoted to human rights protection, transitional justice, and peace education across the ex-Yugoslav space.
