Item description for Protest in Belgrade: Winter of Discontent by Mladen Lazic...
"Protest in Belgrade addresses one of the most important social movements of this decade - the civil and student peace demonstrations which took place in Belgrade during the winter of 1996/97. The demonstrations, the largest ever in history, were in response to Milosevic's nullifying of the results of local elections in fourteen towns in Serbia which created global media attention and attracted worldwide sympathy."--BOOK JACKET. "This in-depth study of a society calling for democracy is based on interviews with over 1000 civilians and students. The book is unique because much of the research was carried out and completed while the demonstrations were still in progress and before the outcome of events was known. A chronology of events is also included."--BOOK JACKET. "The book provides an abundance of valuable information for analysts of post-socialist transformation, researchers of social movements and social change, and for all those concerned with the tragic events in Southeast Europe."--BOOK JACKET.

Reviews - What do customers think about Protest in Belgrade: Winter of Discontent?
On the spot research Aug 24, 1999
This book is an English translation of "Ajmo, ajde, svi u setnju," which was released before six months had passed from the end of the 1996-1997 demonstrations. A group of the most distinguished social scientists in Belgrade, together with their students, researched the student and political protests of the winter as they were happening, providing in short order a work that is both a rigorous analysis and a contemporaneous document of the protests. It is essential material for anybody who wants to understand who were the participants in the longest continuous political protest, and what they believed.
