Balkans in the Cold War

«“The Balkans in the Cold War brings refreshing insights and important contributions. … this volume presents a relevant and useful read not only for historians of the Cold War but also for all those engaged and interested in contemporary European integration of the Balkans.” (Vladimir Petrović, Journal of Cold War Studies, July 12, 2019)
“The Balkans and the Cold War provides a forceful challenge to many of the prevailing interpretations of the region’s history. It effectively makes use of recently released archival documents to alter the understanding of Yugoslav-Soviet relations and the agency of the Balkan states with regards to the Soviet Union, the United States and the EEC. … a valuable contribution to the history of the Balkans in the Cold War.” (Eliot Rothwell, LSE Review of Books, lse.ac.uk, August, 2017)

Positioned on the fault line between two competing Cold War ideological and military alliances, and entangled in ethnic, cultural and religious diversity, the Balkan region offers a particularly interesting case for the study of the global Cold War system. This book explores the origins, unfolding and impact of the Cold War on the Balkans on the one hand, and the importance of regional realities and pressures on the other. Fifteen contributors from history, international relations, and political science address a series of complex issues rarely covered in one volume, namely the Balkans and the creation of the Cold War order; Military alliances and the Balkans; uneasy relations with the Superpowers; Balkan dilemmas in the 1970s and 1980s and the 'significant other' - the EEC; and identity, culture and ideology. The book's particular contribution to the scholarship of the Cold War is that it draws on extensive multi-archival research of both regional and American, ex-Soviet and Western European archives.
