Heavenly Serbia: From Myth to Genocide by Branimir Anzulovic

<p>As violence and turmoil continue to define the former Yugoslavia, basic questions remain unanswered: What are the forces behind the Serbian expansionist drive that has brought death and destruction to Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Kosovo? How did the Serbs rationalize, and rally support for, this genocidal activity?</p> <p><b>Heavenly Serbia</b>traces Serbias nationalist and expansionist impulses to the legendary battle of Kosovo in 1389. Anzulovic shows how the myth of Heavenly Serbia developed to help the Serbs endure foreign domination, explaining their military defeat and the loss of their medieval state by emphasizing their own moral superiority over military victory.<b>Heavenly Serbia</b>shows how this myth resulted in an aggressive nationalist ideology which has triumphed in the late twentieth century and marginalized those Serbs who strive for the establishment of a civil society.</p> <p>Modern Serbian nationalism...and its contradictory connections...have been sources of considerable scholarly interest...Branimir Anzulovics compendium is a good example of the genre, made all the more useful by Anzulovics excellent command of the literature.<br /> Ivo Banac,<i>History of Religions</i></p> <p>Author interview with CNN:<a href=http://www.cnn.com/chat/transcripts/branimir_chat.html>http://www.cnn.com/chat/transcripts/branimir_chat.html</a></p
