Book description: [Post-]Yugoslav anti-war contention has remained a blind spot in East European sociological scholarship. More than a decade after the end of the wars of Yugoslav succession, there is very little that we know about the processes through which the imminence of an armed conflict awakened dormant social networks and strengthened the existing activist circles or created new ones. Resisting the Evil: [Post-]Yugoslav Anti-War Contention systematically illuminates (post-)Yugoslav anti-war engagement as an important and up to now neglected aspect of the complex process of Yugoslavia’s dissolution. With its distinctly trans-national approach, this volume recovers the relevance of various forms of civic organising in former Yugoslavia for the anti-war contention which unfolded before, during and after the wars of Yugoslav succession. This book is a collective endeavour of a group of authors coming from all the republics of former Yugoslavia. It, thus, offers a look from within which has been conspicuously missing from the regional sociology. Almost all of the contributors combine rigorous theoretical reflection with empirically rich accounts stemming from their own activist experience in the (post-)Yugoslav anti-war and peace initiatives.
