About this item

Writing about the Socialist Federative Republic of Yugoslavia from 1943 to 1991, Suvin attempts to account for some questions arising from its utter defeat, which he characterizes as its fully scandalous downfall in the worst imaginable variant of mutually embattled dwarfish classes leading brainwashed mini-nationalisms into warfare. He covers fundamentals: freedom and accumulation, class interests and politics as Yugoslav dominants, self-management: a critical stock-taking 1945-72, the horizon of disalientation: self-government and plebeian democracy, and the socialist/communist discourse about bureaucracy.
