In the 1980s, a wave of popular unrest swept across the eastern
part of Yugoslavia. These events peaked in the 'antibureaucratic
revolution' --a series of large rallies and demonstrations of
industrial workers, Kosovo Serbs and other groups, which were
strongly backed by MiloA!eviAa--and in a counter-mobilization of
Kosovo Albanians. The levels of mobilization surpassed those in
most East European states at the time of communism's collapse, and
the consequences were no less dramatic. Yet these events and their
implications remain largely unexplored two decades later. Blending
narrative with analysis, NebojA!a VladisavljeviAa reveals that the
antibureaucratic revolution was the most crucial episode of
Yugoslav conflicts after Tito. Drawing on primary sources and
cutting-edge research on contentious politics, he explains how
popular unrest contributed to the fall of communism and the rise of
a new form of authoritarianism, competing nationalisms and the
break-up of Yugoslavia. This book sheds new light on the meteoric
ascent to power of Slobodan MiloA!eviAa and on the making of the
contemporary Serb-Albanian nationalist conflict in and over Kosovo.
