From the Author: Critically acclaimed as the most comprehensive study of all aspects of dissent and human rights in Titoist Yugoslavia, which in turn is essential for understanding the prospects for basic human rights, pluralism, democracy, tolerance, an open society, and peace in the Yugoslav successor states, the Balkans, and beyond. Besides the co-editors, Oskar Gruenwald & Karen Rosenblum-Cale, contributors to Human Rights in Yugoslavia include: Aleksa Djilas, Zachary T. Irwin, Radoslav Kostic-Katunac, Rusko Matulic, Matthew M. Mestrovic, Michael M. Milenkovitch, Nicholas Pasic, Dennis Reinhartz, Sami Repishti, Ljubo Sirc, Mirko Vidovic, and Cyril A. Zebot, with a Foreword by Mihajlo Mihajlov. The book also features comprehensive documentation, some translated for the first time, including protests, petitions, and representations by the Committee for the Defense of Freedom of Thought and Expression, the Committee to Aid Democratic Dissidents in Yugoslavia, a chronological review of known individual cases of human rights abuses, 1956-1984, and a list of banned publications, films and plays, 1959-1984. Michael Scammell praised HRY in the New York Review of Books (19 July 1990, p. 37) as "an excellent account of the activities and writings of dissidents in all parts of Yugoslavia . . . . Taken as a whole, it provides a comprehensive picture of the rise of dissent in Yugoslavia over the past thirty years."
