The important position that the regime of Slobodan Milošević performed within the bloody dissolution of Yugoslavia is widely known, yet Marko ivković explores one other part of this period of time: the tales humans in Serbia have been telling themselves (and others) approximately themselves. ivković strains the ordinary issues, scripts, and narratives that permeated public discourse in Milošević’s Serbia, as Serbs defined themselves as Gypsies or Jews, violent highlanders or peaceable lowlanders, and invoked their very own mythologized defeat on the conflict of Kosovo. the writer investigates nationwide narratives, using culture for political reasons, and native idioms, paying particular realization to the usually strange and outlandish tropes humans hired to make experience in their social truth. He means that the enchantments of political existence below Milošević can be fruitfully visible as a dreambook of Serbian nationwide imaginary.
