Race and the Yugoslav Region : Postsocialist, Post-Conflict, Postcolonial?, Hardback Book

Race and the Yugoslav Region : Postsocialist, Post-Conflict, Postcolonial? Hardback

Part of the Theory for a Global Age series

Description

This is the first book to situate the territories and collective identities of former Yugoslavia within the politics of race - not just ethnicity - and the history of how ideas of racialised difference have been translated globally.

The book connects critical race scholarship, global historical sociologies of 'race in translation' and south-east European cultural critique to show that the Yugoslav region is deeply embedded in global formations of race.

In doing this, it considers the everyday geopolitical imagination of popular culture; the history of ethnicity, nationhood and migration; transnational formations of race before and during state socialism, including the Non-Aligned Movement; and post-Yugoslav discourses of security, migration, terrorism and international intervention, including the War on Terror and the present refugee crisis. -- .
