about this item

The states created after the dissolution of Yugoslavia in 1992 all appointed official national anthems—the purpose of which was to forge new national identities out of the bloody and difficult history of the region. Building on Benedict Anderson’s work on ‘imagined communities’, Identity and Nationalism in the Balkans is the first full-length study into the role of national anthems in engendering feelings of nationalism. A textual analysis of these national songs aims to provide new insights into the history of the nations created after the fall of Yugoslavia, and show how these songs reveal the hopes and fears of the new countries—their future and their past.
