Summary "Twentieth-century Southeastern Europe endured three separate decades of international and civil war, and was marred by forced migration and wrenching systemic changes. This book is the result of a year-long project by the Open Society Institute to examine and reappraise this tumultuous century." "The studies invite attention to fascism, socialism, and liberalism as well as nationalism and Communism. While most chapters deal with war and confrontation, they focus also on the remembrance of such conflicts in shaping today's ideology and national identity."--Jacket
